    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.
