Bicycle or rental: A viral audio that divides the Internet, what do you listen to?
It will not be the first, nor will it surely be the last, and we have already experienced this type of audio or image on several occasions that divide the Internet. We remember that blue or white dress and also the audio that seems that young people heard differently from adults.
On this occasion we are sure that there will be a division of opinions. Is about a small piece of audio in which a lady is commenting that she has brought the money from the XXXXXX.
Here on a personal level I have heard the first time the bicycleHowever, in a second listening I have realized that the woman puts the words together of rental. I don’t know if it seems the same to you, but in the semantic field it makes more sense too, of course.
I do not know if it will raise as much discussion as that of the dress that we saw blue and black or white and gold. This time I think the crux of the matter lies more in pronunciation and accent.
The other viral moment was the audio of the pronunciation of a name that according to the reproduced frequencies he looked more like Laurel or Yanny.
Be that as it may, it’s fun to see how we don’t all hear the same although the reproduced audio, the source, is exactly the same.
In fact, many people comment that we are dealing with a case in which if you look at a word when listening to it, you hear that word and if you look at the other, you hear the other. However the solution, comment on it here, what if, it’s bicycle.
If you hear one word and then another, as has happened to me, we are facing a clear example of the McGurk effect since the tempo at which the woman speaks is very fast and leaves very little separation between syllables and here the suggestion than what you really hear.
