What do you hear? “Yanny” or “Laurel??”  So this was the big question around the country yesterday.  See how different ones heard 2 different words.  Scientists explains it all!

  • The internet is aflame about whether a robotic-sounding recording says “yanny” or “laurel.”
  • Speech scientists say there’s a simple reason for the audio trickery that has to do with the way our brains learn to quickly decipher vowels and words.
  • The recording seems to be a slightly altered version of vocabulary.com’s pronunciation aide for the word laurel. (Sorry, team yanny.)
