Reverse Speech and competency

I’m often gob smacked at what is being played publicly as speech reversals. Here I give an example. A guest on a radio show is presenting some of his reversals. He has a particular interest in finding reversals on Shiva and Nazi. Not one says Shiva. Any reversal with Nazi either is not there or highly dubious. These here represent the majority of reversals played. Not one of them is accurate. This makes any discussion of the meaning of these invalid.


Documented RS: We hail Shiva over apartment

FS … mi[ssion is possible, obviously if you’re] dealing with

We hailobvious[ly if you’re] [we] sounds like [y’re]. If /y/ is removed it sounds like [re]. The FS /f/ disappears substantially and is most likely not part of the next word, which seems to be [tail]  

Shiva [obvious]ly /b/ has frication alongside /v/ in the FS. It may be heard as /va/ in RS, but also [the]. The sibilant is substantially an /s/ rather than palatised. It resembles ‘siva’ or ‘see the’  

over apartment – [ssion is possible o]bviously

over [ible o]  – can sound roughly like [over], can sound roughly like [all the] too.

apartment [ssion is pos]sible  The release of /s/ may create some sense of a stop consonant – here it was documented as /p/, but also could be /t/. FS /p/ is silent. The movement from /s/ to /p/ in the FS [s – p] has created some sense of a mid /t/ in the RS word. For [ment], this comes from [ssion i]s where the release of the vowel /i/ and the onset of /s/ creates a perception of /d/. The remainder sounds like [ench] from [ssion i]. There is no initial /a/ in the RS word.  

So, overall it sounds something like – yre tail siva all the(?) part-dench, which is gibberish.  


Documented RS: Position, I’m ashamed of Hitler war

FS: [public information which is of] course the easiest …

Position[ion which is of]   /n/ comes from /n/. RS /s/ comes from i[s]. RS [ti] comes from FS [ch]. FS /w/ rounds the vowel [io] somewhat. Perception of /p/ comes from FS /f/, though /f/ can still be perceived. It roughly sounds like ‘position’. 

I’m ashamed ofin[formatio]n  The closest pronoun is probably ‘we’, and there is no /m/. There is no /a/ in front of [shame] unless the first syllable is accepted as /a/ and there is no pronoun. The way the speaker utters ‘information’ where the final vowel [io] is released and before the onset of the final phoneme /n/, there is a gap which resembles /w/. ‘Shame’ comes at [mati] and sounds like it, but more precisely it is ‘shiem’. Although [ed] can be slight, there is no indication of it here. ‘Of’ comes from FS [fo].  It resembles ‘we shame of’

Hitler war[public in]formation

So, we have something like We shame of nikdo/tikdo wa(r?)


Documented RS: Send a dog Shiva

FS: … assessme[nt that this was an S]A eleven

Shivaassessme[nt that this]  /sh/ is /s/ from thi[s]. /v/ is an ambiguous sound, which is closest to a dental/alveolar /th/ or /d/ but takes on some labial quality like /p/. It sounds like there is an unreleased alveolar ending such as /d/ or /n/ from the ending of ‘assessment’ in the forward speech. So, it sounds something like sithid/sipid or sithin/sipin. 

dogthis [was] – The vowel s strongly articulated with strong ramping up energy and ramping down energy. The strong ramping up energy at the release of FS /s/ and the start of the FS vowel /a/ gave the impression of /d/. The ramping down of the vowel combined with the release of FS /s/ and onset of /w/ gave the impression of a consonant (in this case the /g/).  

Send a[an S] – no /d/ but approximates words. I think the reversal may have been presented as ‘the dog’.

This is unlikely to be reversal.


Documented RS: I begone, Shiva might murder ill

FS: … only I don’t have original declassification …

I begone – origi[nal decla]ssification Sounds like ‘a-pigone’, but approximates documented words. 

Shiva – [orig]   /v/ is /r/. Vowel /i/ is short. 

might – [have]  Initial most like /v/. Aspirated /h/ ending only. 

murder – [y I don’t]  a light/n/ can be perceived followed by [oi], then /d/, and then /ai/ from [y I]. 

ill – on[ly]  This can be perceived from [ly], however it continues on to sound like ‘illa’.

This is gibberish.


Documented RS: Share with her sin it’s healthy

FS: it points in a certain direction

Share with[directi]on closest sounds are ‘charit’ 

her sin  – i[n a cer]tain  – can sound like documented words ‘er sin’.

it’s healthy[it points i]n it’s comes from [ts i]. ‘healthy’ is roughly ‘nel-ty’ with FS /n/ at /h/.  

So, it comes out something like Charit (h)er sin it’s nelty  


Documented RS: That’s nazi

FS: … how we believe it; sometimes you can’t ….

That’s some[time]s  This sounds something like ‘me-at-e’  

nazi [it some]times FS /m/ can sound like /n/. Ending is like ‘ast-e’ 

There is obviously nothing there.


Documented RS: The nazi him assassin

FS: an assessment based on a b …

The nazib[ased on]  approximates nazi except that primary stress is on 2nd syllable. ‘The’ sounds something like [ra] (if labial influence from /b/ is not included, which is a different syllable). 

him [ment ba] Sounds something like ‘ibnin’. This also includes what has been documented as /a/ in [assassin]

assassina[n assess]ment This can be isolated. However, in reality there is no initial /a/. Only ‘ssassin’ is there. 

Overall, it sounds something like rana seebnin sassin  


Documented RS: We that/they’ve killed them first we know

FS: [When you start from a place of you] have …..

We that/they’ve killed[place of you]  [we] comes from FS [you]. /th/ may be heard from FS /f/. It may sound like ‘this’ when isolated, but the sibilant disappears in a general listening to be replaced by a /t/ burst to produce [till]. Before [till], it sounds like [the]. The FS /p/ is silent.  

them first – [start from a] place  The FS two /t/s disappear to permit [firs] without a /t/ ending. RS /m/ occurs from FS /m/. /th/ may be perceived from the ramping up energy of the vowel /e/, however this is ambiguous and it could also be heard as /c/, and the word [come]. 

We know[when you]  There is /y/ following /n/ and the vowel sounds like /o/ as in ‘yo’.  

Overall the string sounds something like we the till/come firs(t)/we knew/nyo, which is dubious.


Documented RS: And I’ll share venom

FS: we’ve said, uh, what our assess[ment is; very strong] assessment publicly …

And I’llvery str[on]g   ‘and’ can be isolated, but whether it is a separate word and reversal beginning is questionable. ‘I’ is possible, but no indication of [‘ll’] – the vowel /o/ is too short and it moves straight to /sh/.

share –  [very str]ong  /sh/ comes from [str]. FS /v/ can be perceived as /d/ to produce ‘shared’. The The FS /v/ does not belong to the word following (venom).

venomasses[sment is] /n/ and /m/ are perceived from the FS sounds. The initial /v/ is /z/ from i[s]. It also sounds like the /s/ on the end could belong with it as well.  

The final word is gibberish.


Documented RS: August hell

Augustlo[gical]  au can be perceived from [al], /g/ from FS /c/, and ending /sh/.

hell[lo]gical   [ell] can be perceived without /h/

The problem with this is the poor stress structure with the 3 syllables going weak – stronger – strongest combined with the fact that it is only two words. Although there is an approximation of phonemes, this is gibberish.


Documented RS: Don’t want to feel a villain

FS: ab[solutely believe that it wa]s …

Don’t i[t wa]s  The ending may be perceived from the FS /t/, and RS /d/ may be heard from the strong ramping up energy of the FS vowel /a/.

want to[that i]t was  RS /w/ actually comes from the movement of /i/ to just before the onset of /t/. RS /n/ is /d/. Final RS vowel is like /i/. There is /th/ at the end which gets lost in an overall listening with the following /f/ in ‘feel’. So what can be perceived is ‘whati(f)’

feel ab[elieve]

villain ab[solutely b]elieve  No /n/ occurs as a final phoneme; the ending is an /s/. The initial is ambiguous and has been documented as /v/.  

Overall, it sounds like ‘Don’t wadda feel a villoos’. There is lack of evidence for ‘villain’.  


Documented RS: Garden of evil, hell

FS: But look, we have endeavoured …

Garden of – ha[ve endeav]oured – /n/ occurs. FS /d/ has become a sibilant /z/ sound rather than /d/. Initial is /v/ from the FS phoneme rather than /g/. This sounds like ‘vaz’n’. RS [of] sounds like [ev] from the FS [ve e]ndeavoured. 

evil [look we ha]ve   In the FS section [we ha]ve, The vowel moves from /ei/ to a rounded vowel [eiyou]. /k/ may be perceived from the FS [k] but this sound is ambiguous and can sound like other phonemes. Broken down into sounds, it can sound like ‘eiyou(k?)’l’.The mind can be tricked into hearing the word ‘evil’.  

hell[but]  FS /t/ disappears leaving a very small amount of aspiration. The final sound is ambiguous and can be heard as /b/.    

This is gibberish.


Documented RS: So we warn you girl    

FS: assessment right, we know where it was fired from

So we[where it was] /t/ disappears leaving an approximation of [so]. RS /w/ belongs to [so] through rounding of mouth, then a vowel sound [er] occurs rather than /i/ in [we]. The /w/ in [where] creates an /l/ ending. The closest language is so earl  

warn you[we know]

girl[right]  The initial consonant is ambiguous. Not like /g/, more like /d/ or /b/. A diphthong vowel occurs /e-a/, then /r/, curling of the tongue may give some sense of /l/ at end. This is gibberish.  

A language-like string occurs – So earl warn you   


Documented RS: Know we did it

FS: [I didn’t say one] hundred percent.

Know[one]  /w/ from /w/ beginning of [one]. /n/ from /n/.

we –  didn’t [say o]ne  /s/  assimilates into /t/ that follows. With [ay], /w/ can be perceived through the /y/ as voicing moves to the /w/ sound in [one]. Vowel is closest to vowel in ‘we’re’.

did it[I didn’t]  [dn] disappears leaving /t/ and /d/. Some may perceive /t/ as /ch/ as there is some frication. Vowel ending /a/ occurs.  

Sounds like know we’re tida, but word-wise closest would be ‘know were cheater’ (no Americaan /r/).


Documented RS: Man that sell crucify thief

FS: … bragging about [the attack that took place then] walking back from it …

Man that[and then]  RS /m/ is either /n/ or it is a tap /r/ (where the tongue taps the alveolar ridge at the same place as /n/ , otherwise the rest is OK. 

sell[place] This is OK, /p/ is silent

crucify [cruc] occurs at [took]. [i] has /t/ before it as in [ti] from the /t/ in FS [that]. The /th/ tends to disappear. [fy] occurs at a[ttack]. The place of /f/ is ambiguous and may be perceived as /k/, /f/ or /p/. It sounds like crucify with a /t/ in it. 

thief [the at]   RS /th/ perception has occurred from the strong ramping up energy of the vowel combined with /s/ frication as articulation in the FS moved toward /t/. The final consonant may be heard as different things, /f/ is one of them.

This is imprecise.


Documented RS: All ashamed to call murder

FS: we again continue to [gather more information and call] ah on on Russia …

All – c[all]  Sounds like orkh  

ashamed – in[formation an]d  /n/ occurs after ‘orkh’. Another /n/ can be perceived after this [n an]. RS [ed t] is probably not there. It sounds something like ‘nanshamer’

call – m[ore n]  May perceived as [c] but there is ambiguity and one may perceive it as /p/. There is /r/ in it.  

murder – g[ather m]ore  This is OK.

This is imprecise.
