Length Effects in Word Perception: We Is Better Than I but Worse Than You or Them.
Samuel, Arthur G.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, v8 n1 p91-105 Feb 1982

Poor performance on the single letter words I and A appears to be a manifestation of a more general length effect; recognition of briefly presented words improves with increasing length (up to three or four letters).
