    A similar question that interests me is how to measure which
    languages are 'faster' or 'slower' in speech. How much time
    does it take to utter parallel texts in various languages? Surely
    you would have to define a standard speech tempo in each of them,
    and there would be a lot of caveats, yet I think it should be possible
    to do research and get some reasonable results. (Or, perhaps the
    subject has been researched already? At the moment I'm not aware
    of any extensive study. Any hints?)
