How many words would you expect in a 5-6 minute speech as an estimate?

A normal person speaks between 110 words and 150 words a minute. A 5 minute speech is thus between 550 and 750 words. However, if you are naturally a fast talker or start talking too fast because you are nervous you can easily get up to 180 words a minute. When radio announcers are trying to be funny by reading legal disclaimer type language fast in a commercial, they are speaking between 220 and 250 words per minute.

Should be about 400 words, depends on your speed & articulation! Write about 1,5 PC typed side in size 12, an than read it 2-3 times by stopping your time :)
