What is the fastest spoken language in terms of how fast words are pronounced after each other?

As to why, you can only speculate. The study claims that the information density per syllable is lower for both Japanese and Spanish, meaning to express the same amount of information, you have to pack a lot more syllables into a time span than for example in German.

White out PDF: All You Need to Know

Another study from the same authors has shown that there is only a difference in the number of syllables in Japanese sentences with and without particle agreement, the difference is of 1-100. So is it really that insignificant that for a sentence like “We go to the beach at 10.45am.” there is 1 more syllable per word, whilst “We eat at the beach at 10.45am” has only 10 fewer syllables? For example, in the sentence We ate the crab last night, is the correct sentence in comparison to We crab ate last night. In Spanish, the correct answer would be “Atropos” due to the particle agreement, because “Atropos” is 1 less syllable than the regular expression 'to be'. If you take all these factors into consideration, there is no clear explanation for why the syllables can be so much lower in Japanese and Spanish than in English. This means that there is no obvious.
