Few people are able to speak articulately at a sustained speed greater than 300 words per minute. However, Steve Woodmore of Orpington, England spoke 595 words in a time of 56.01 seconds on the British program "Motor Mouth." Sean Shannon, a Canadian residing in Oxford, England once recited Hamlet's soliloquy, "To Be or Not to Be," which is 260 words in a time of 24 seconds, equal to 650 words per minute.
One of my mother's interesting habits is that she often talks to herself. We have sat silently in a room, or a car and I have looked over and seen her mouth moving, but no audible sound being projected.
