I'm doing some listening practice. I hear the sentence to be "I didn't think quill could ...", and I don't understand. Could you help me listen to it?


  • ... be affected by anything that I did.

  • @mc01, sorry, I was a little lazy when I typed the question. I know the "be affected by anything that I did" (thank you for minding) part. I just didn't know the "quill" part...

  • No worries - I didn't understand that either. Figured it was from some movie or show w/a character named "Quill" ... Computerized voices maybe aren't the best option for listening comprehension ;)

The sentence being spoken is actually:

I didn't think Will could be affected by anything that I did.

The problem is with the pronunciation of the speech synthesis software—there's a slight stutter. You're mistaking Will for quill.
