It's the first great debate of 2018 as this short audio clip has gone viral. Users can manipulate the slider to the left, until they hear Laurel.or move the slider to the right to hear Yanny.

Basically, if you hear "yanny", you're hearing acoustic information from a higher frequency.

A post from the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office questions how to give directions to Laurel Valley Road, if potentially some may hear Yanny.

The speaker took a vote of "Laurel" fans at a news conference in the Capitol to find who was in the same camp.

While there's not a clear answer of what the word is in the recording, it all depends how you look at - or hear it.

Millstine added, "There was some proof out there that Laurel is the original word, the original recording is Laurel and there is a high frequency overlay that got put on to make Yanni". She said she heard laurel.

Jody Kreiman, Professor of Head and Neck Surgery and Linguistics at UCLA, said listeners would normally have "semantic context" to interpret what they are hearing. "They're like eight-year-old treehouse buddies with those cans on strings, gossiping about which girls they secretly paid off, or whether it's Yanny or Laurel", Noah said. "Is the person more of a high-pitched voice or a low-pitched voice?"

The clip picked up steam after a debate erupted on Reddit this week. It all started after YouTuber Cloe Couture tweeted out a video clip asking, "What do you hear?!" Take our online poll and let us know: Yanny or Laurel? Couple this with all the cultural and linguistic ways we've been trained to hear certain vowels, and you've got a flawless recipe for a little audio illusion.
