A question for Paca (Llama)

I have noticed that lately I have started transposing the last two letters in a word. It's just a typo, but it is almost always the last two letters... not any others. Is this a documented phenomenon, and, if it is, what theories exist to explain it?

Stumped. I'll have to see if I can dig anything up.

It's called laziness. Geez, that was easy!

Most common errors I've observed: One hand goes faster than the other, as in 'teh' for 'the'. OR the transposition is either the last or first letter and the space bar ('th eend' for 'the end'). This is a case where the thumb beats the letter or lags behind.
