People Can't Agree On Whether This Robot Is Saying 'Yanny' Or 'Laurel'

The A-10

In the great internet debate between did you hear Yanny or Laurel, there's only one clear answer. On Wednesday night, the Jimmys of late night jumped into the fray with their takes on "laurel" vs. "yanny", then Ellen DeGeneres touched on it Thursday with guests Shawn Mendes and Sandra Bullock, as well. Katie Hetzel, a freshman at Flowery Branch High School in Georgia, had a question about one of her vocabulary words, "laurel". First, she played a clip that sounded like nonsensical static, or something out of a horror movie.

"I don't hear Yanny at all", Danik said.

"I asked my friends in my class and we all heard mixed things", Hetzel told Wired.

Skip Bayless Delivers Brutal Shot to LeBron James After Game 2 Loss
He scored 13 of Cleveland's last 15 points to go in with 21 at the first break, but tellingly, his side only lead by four points. Boston mounted a mini comeback at the end of the first half and picked up right where they left off to start the third quarter.

An audio clip of one not-so-simple word is driving the social media world insane. This is why we ultimately all hear the same sound differently.

Tucker, whose research focuses on how the sounds of words can get "reduced" in the flow of conversation, also pointed out that varying interpretations of words aren't limited to online snippets. Of course, the Internet has split between those who heard one name or the other. As the bass is adjusted, the word seems to shift.

If you hear Laurel, you are hearing lower notes. There is too much publicity now about what you should hear (why are there only 2 choices?) to back up and do an unbiased test. "Typically, if you have a high-quality recording and you're listening on a good device of some sort, you're not ever going to be confused by those". Well, your ears just might be different. "In this case, the suggestion is that people are actually hearing different things. All I hear is Yanny", Sanders replied. Primary information that would be present in a high-quality recording or in person is "weakened or attenuated", Story says, even as the brain is eagerly looking for patterns to interpret. "It's definitely, definitely, definitely 'Yanny'".
