The querty keyboard is comparatively easier to pronounce as a two-syllable word.



By the way, the placement of the various letters was devised in such a way as to "slow down" the typist! Why? Because the original typewriters of the late 1800's tended to jam too easily, if one attempted to type too quickly. Of course, when IBM invented the "Selectric" typewriter with a typing ball instead of a series of hammers that slid between two thinly spaced walls, the QWERTY configuration was considered antiquated.



There WAS an attempt to redesign the placement of the keyboard, once the non-jamming typewriter was invented. It was called the DVORAK (pronounced dih-VOHR-zshack) configuration. However, generations of typists refused to accept the newer configuration because they were all used to the old QWERTY version.



Hope this helps,
