As the current study was part of a larger study, stimulus material comprised German pseudowords, pseudowords similar to number words, and German number words ranging from 0 to 9, all of them obeying standard German phonotactic constraints. Corresponding pairs of stimuli (i.e., pseudowords and number words) were created such that their number of syllables and phonemes as well as, for the only bisyllabic pair ("sieben" (seven) vs. "leumer"), also the segmental structure was identical (see Table ). All stimuli were spoken by an experienced male speech therapist and recorded with the support of the Audio-Visual Media Centre at the University Hospital Aachen. To minimize possible influences of low-level auditory features such as pitch, loudness, or accent these were held constant. This approach was chosen to decrease phonetic variation between German number words and pseudowords. All stimuli were presented auditorily via headphones.

In 1968, Goldman-Eisler claimed that the average speech rate was between 138 – 258 syllables per minute. As far as I know, this study has never been replicated. The figure of 258 spm seems high to me – but then I’m a British, male speech therapist; perhaps others do speak this fast? Schnoebelen (2009) claims that some comedians (whose forte is fast talking) can reach as high as 402 spm but that this rate only sounds natural when it occurs for brief moments.
