During our lecture about speech perception and segmentation, I was reminded of this video. In the video, we are able to pick up some words while others sound like gibberish. This is similar to when we listen to someone speak a foreign language. Segmentation is affected by context, meaning, and our knowledge of word structure. So even though the video is technically in English, we don't understand it because it is out of context.
