What Do You Hear? Yanny or Laurel?
Man, the internet comes up with the dumbest things. This audio clip has "divided" the internet into to fighting sanctions. What is it? Yanny or Laurel?
I'll admit, I listened to this on my phone last night and hear "Yanny." Then, while I was gathering the audio clip just now, it sounds like "Laurel." What. The. Heck?
According to the New York Times, this was originally recorded by a student working on a project who got the audio from vocabulary.com. The original recording is of "Laurel," which is a celebratory wreath worn on the head.
It's amazing the tricks our minds play on us. I've listened and listened and listened to this clip and now all I hear is Laurel.
What are your ears telling you?
