Why Some Languages Sound So Much Faster than Others - TIME
Japanese has a high syllable speech rate (7.84 syllables per second average) but a low syllable information density (0.49). For comparison, English is 6.19/0.91, Mandarin 5.18/0.94, Spanish at 7.82/0.63. However, averaging total data output, most languages average out the same total information output for a given time unit, indicating a neural limit on language.
