Baal Koreh leined without saying every word from the Sefer Torah

Question:

Hi,
If the Baal Koreh leined the parsha without saying every single word from the Sefer Torah (ex. when going from one end of the line to the beginning of the next line he just said the word by heart) is the Tzibbur still yotzeh their chiyuv of hearing krias haTorah?
And are the any mekoros for this?
Thank you very much,
Kol tuv,

Answer:

If the baal koreh said every word, but missed seeing it inside, if it is only a word or two the tzibbur is still yotza kriyas hatorah. He may not do this if it will a whole idea.

Best wishes
