You mean at the level of words, or sentences? A sentence already has
enough redundancy that it's frequently possible to reconstruct the
original intent despite errors (as in this case), but it's impossible
to be 100% certain in all cases without either severely limiting the
forms of communication, or simply increasing redundancy, which will
result in abbreviation.
