What's with the boxes?

I don't quite understand why each word appears in a box. http://imgur.com/TepE8 All this does is make the text more difficult to read. I don't need boxes to tell me where a word starts and where it ends. Spaces work just fine.

The boxes probably lead more people to discover that hovering over a word reveals its meanings.

Thanks for this feedback. We'll provide a way to turn it off. We did it because some people did not realize they were able to hove on the words.

Seriously, these boxes are extremely frustrating. It makes it so hard to understand the sentence as a whole.
