What do you hear, is it Yanny or Laurel?

descargar el crack de mad riders - Twitter Nobody can agree if this robot says 'Yanny' or 'Laurel' and everyone is arguing about it

The dictionary site hasn't revealed the man's identity, but said he was one of several trained singers enlisted to record hundreds of thousands of pronunciations, based on the rules of the worldwide phonetic alphabet.

I believe the original recording was meant to be a synthesis of "Laurel", but the speech generation method in this case was just kind of shoddy - leading to the very understandable misperception.

Experts say the fierce debate all has to do with sound frequency.

Patricia Keating, a linguistics professor and the director of the phonetics lab at UCLA, said: "It depends on what part [what frequency range] of the signal you attend to". Neurons in this area actually change their activity patterns when listeners are in noisy places that make certain words sound ambiguous.

People listening to the exact same recording hear totally different things. Completely ignoring the spectral power in the "middle" frequencies. It's a new audio debate dividing the internet, and, it's over two simple words.

Dr. Voellinger said older people might be more prone to hearing laurel because they may be more likely to lose their high-frequency hearing. Sure, we guessed it had something to do with subtle differences in sensory capability, which eventually explained why people saw "the dress" differently.

Introducing: the Yanny-Laurel debate that's fractured the internet. She adds that sound can be filtered with our expectations.

"The sound seems to have a mix of some cues for the sounds making up laurel, and also some cues for the sounds making up yanny".

Judy Huch is a doctor of audiology.

In a recent interview with WIRED, Katie Hetzel, a freshman at Flowery Branch High School, said she played the pronunciation clip of the word "Laurel" on vocabulary.com while studying for a literature class.

No matter what you believe, there's still the one burning question left unanswered; what do you hear?

The US Department of Defense made light of the controversy on its Twitter account, with a photo of a US Marine Corps instructor berating a recruit: "I said it's #Yanny, recruit, not #Laurel!". I loved it. And now you betray me?
