Wanna know something kinda funny? I had occasion to mention a beer commercial during a work/research meeting this afternoon.
We were talking about an experiment we will be running, which will involve getting people to judge whether two similar-sounding spoken utterances of the same text are being produced with the same intonation contour (or the same meaningful “tune”). Because, as you probably realize, you can say the same words a whole bunch of different ways. Or the same single word, even.
(Thanks to tabba for sharing the video, which I hadn’t seen before. Dude.)
