You may have heard 'Yanny.' Or 'Laurel.' Charles Barkley heard 'doughnut.'

Laurel or Yanny what do you hear

Team Yanny and Team Laurel. From there, Cloe Feldman, a YouTube vlogger, spread the question further on Twitter.

There are many reasons as to why you heard Laurel or Yanny.

To put it simply, it has do with frequencies and how people hear them differently. While many Hollywood celebrities such as Mindy Kaling and Sarah Hyland are in the "Yanny" camp, others such as TV hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert are convinced they heard "Laurel".

Brad Story, the Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing at the University of Arizona explained that because the audio isn't of good quality and people are listening through different devices means everyone is hearing different things.

The age of the listener also plays a part in what you hear.

Do you agree with McCoy that the clip says Laurel or are you hearing what Dawkins heard in the first few seconds of the clip?

However, if you definitively want to know what the word is, it's "Laurel".

.

Last Friday, Georgia high school student, Katie Hetzel was studying the word "laurel" for her literature class and chose to look it up on Vocabulary.com.

On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Steve Higgins heard "yanny" while The Roots heard "laurel" - and Questlove did a remix, then punted.

"The acoustic information that makes us hear Yanny is at a higher frequency than the acoustic information that makes us hear Laurel", he said. Meaning even the slightest change like writing Laurel before Yanny might have changed what you heard.
