Talking balloons

Charles Taylor uses balloons to investigate speech.

Balloons are fun at parties, but with a bit of work, you can also make them talk. In this video, Charles Taylor demonstrates what 'talking' balloons can tell us about how we process and understand speech.

Charles Taylor gave the 1989 CHRISTMAS LECTURES "Exploring music". This clip is from his first lecture "Making and measuring the waves".
