In part 5, when the speaker gives a detailed description of Japanese attack, his pace drops to 1.23 words per second but in part 6 the pace reaches 1.58 words per second, the highest in this speech.
Benchmarks of 15,000+ words per second text extraction from PDF files and 12,000+ text extraction speeds from MS Office documents.
Up to 500 words per second can be translated, depending on processor speed and system configuration.
The slowest scene in His Girl Friday, the scene in which Hildy interviews Earl Williams in jail, clocks in at 2.9 words per second; the slowest in The Front Page, between Molly and Earl, is 2.4 w/s.
Thus, Hawks makes the scene faster in part by adding dialogue so that there are more words per second Without the rests and with the larger number of speakers, the sound track also becomes more complex, an effect that contributes to the spectator's sense of speed.
(Unfortunately most of Muni's lines here and elsewhere in the film are too short to get an accurate count of words per second,(2) although a longer speech, from the first scene in the police station and seeming to me about the same speed, clocks in at 2.5 w/s while Lovo's longest speech, just prior to his murder and beginning"No, no I didn't do it," has a speed reminiscent of His Girl Friday, 4.8 w/s.) The same rhythmic contrast is evident in all of their scenes together with the exception of the scene in which Camonte, glorying in his new-found possession of a machine gun, openly defies Johnny and plans to attack the North Side.
"Interviewers who spoke moderately fast, at a rate of about 3.5 words per second, were much more successful at getting people to agree than either interviewers who talked very fast or very slowly," said Benki, a speech scientist.
For each individual subject, recall was regressed on word articulation rate (words per second), both varying over 1-, 2- and 3- syllable items.
Median reading time over the three trials in each condition was converted into a word articulation rate in words per second.
A one-half clock cycle guard time can be imposed on the TDMA timing structure to protect the system from interference, but this alternative will reduce the overall system efficiency with the loss of one-half of a 64 bit word per frame, or 2000 64 bit words per second. It would be best, in an operational TDMA system, to reduce the modulator turn on timing to minimize interference signals and maximize overall system efficiency.
According to the researchers, with email, the internet, television and other media, people are inundated with around 100,000 words a day - equivalent to 23 words per second.
