Acceptable – 120-170 words per minute
Too fast – more than 170 words per minute

If you take more than thirty seconds to read this message out loud, you are a slow speaker. If you take fifteen seconds you are speaking at a rate of two hundred and fifty words per minute which is too fast for most audiences to follow easily. But remember that your message and nature of your audience can modify your speaking rate.
Verbal Fluency
Pauses & Verbal Fillers can make a big impact on any speech
Pronunciation, Articulation, Dialect
Pronunciation is the correct formation of word sounds

Articulation is the clarity or forcefulness with which the sounds are made

Dialects are sub-cultural variations on pronunciation and articulation

Don’t mumble or be a lazy speaker – try to avoid “pitfalls” from your geographical location – people from Philadelphia, I am talking to yous!!
