The Laurel Vs. Yanny Issue Is Settled By The Man Who Actually Spoke The Word

If you got a little tired of hearing the recording of “laurel vs. yanny” being played last week, just think how Jay Aubrey Jones felt. He just happens to be the Broadway and TV actor who recorded the clip for Vocabulary.com back in 2007. And though lots of people hear “yanny” he says he is, in fact, saying “laurel.” And he adds that he initially didn’t recognize his own voice when the clip started making the rounds. “I think it has to do first of all with what has happened with people’s computers or listening devices, also how people process sound, which is highly individual,” he says of why people are hearing different things. So there you go, it’s “Laurel.”
