[i]When Neil Armstrong took his first step on the Moon, he claimed he said, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” – but many listeners think he left out the “a.” A team of speech scientists and psychologists from Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing and The Ohio State University (OSU) in Columbus is taking a novel approach to deciphering Armstrong’s quote by studying how speakers from his native central Ohio pronounce “for” and “for a.” Their results suggest that it is entirely possible that Armstrong said what he claimed, though evidence indicates that people are statistically more likely to hear “for man” instead of “for a man” on the recording. The team will present its work at the 21st International Congress on Acoustics (ICA 2013), held June 2-7 in Montreal. [/i]
