NEW YORK (AP) — Do you hear what I hear?
That’s the question as a short audio clip has sparked a social media debate about whether the word is “Yanny” or “Laurel.”
The debate began on Reddit and expanded throughout social media. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that everything at her show stopped to see what people heard. She said she heard Laurel. But New Age musician Yanni was in the Yanny camp.
Some people speculated the age of the listener might determine what people heard, while others changed the pitch to alter results.
All listeners come down solidly on one side or the other — as with that famous dress three years ago that people saw either as white and gold or blue and black.
