Speech Quizzes & Trivia

Did you know that when we read we don’t actually cover the entire word in our mind? We use our past experiences to help us identify a word by the place of certain letters in that word, in order to read faster. Imagine if the same principle applied to speech. Would there be chaos because people register words differently, or would we discover that we could talk more in shorter periods of time? And, are we even interested in that?

Take these quizzes to find out more about the act of speech from questions like: “What other forms can the speech take?”, “What is the brain process by which we learn to speak?”, “What kinds of problems are some people confronted with in regards to speech?”, and “How does speech evolution occur across centuries?”
