I want to know what is the fastest spoken language, meaning with the most syllables spoken in one minute. I only know three languages, but French seems to me as sometimes too fast to even comprehend. When I watch a French TV series or movie with the actual actors doing the talking, I find myself frustrated. I can understand the gist of most what is said, but I don't seem to be able to make out individual words clearly like I can in English. It might have something to do with my competence in both languages, or the amount of media I'm exposed to in each language (English wins by a landslide in both), but I have the feeling that the French language is still faster than English or most other languages in that regard. What do you think is the fastest spoken language?
