Surely we have all known at least one person who pronounces the words so quickly that sometimes we can even lose the thread of the conversation. However, nothing we have heard surpasses the fastest-speaking woman in the world.
An admirable loquacity
Her name is Fran Capo, a multifaceted woman who was born in New York, United States, and is a writer, comedian and actress, among other occupations.
It is currently inscribed in the Guinnes Records book with a mark of 603 words in 54 seconds, which means the figure of more than 10 words per second, something truly impressive and undoubtedly impossible for an ordinary person to achieve.
Its pronunciation is so fast that one really could not distinguish if it is a fast-forward video. Fran has a special language skills but, apart from this, comments that she performs a series of exercises to achieve such speed. His ability, on the other hand, is due to a hyperfunctionality in the bit area, area in which the language occurs.
In people who have some damage in that area, the exact opposite happens, and well, they do not speak or their speech becomes very slow, as much as the severity of their damage.
To achieve this speed Fran performs a series of routine exercises that allow him to preserve his level. However, if this is impressive, it is no less astonishing that Fran is able to understand the words faster than he utters them. Quite a woman’s prodigy.
And how many words do you manage to say in 10 seconds? Congratulations if you reach the figure of 40, which means you can pronounce supremely fast, at a rate of 4 words per second.
