Temporal analysis of English and Spanish narratives [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Two groups of 45 adolescent young men, native speakers of English and Spanish, respectively, retold a narrative after individual auditory and/or visual presentation of an 80-sec episode. Spanish stories were longer in mean number of syllables, but shorter in mean number of words, than were English stories; word length in syllables was shorter in English. In most respects, silent pauses were comparable across the two languages, but vocal hesitations varied considerably. Articulation and speech rates were much faster in Spanish than in English. Auditory presentation elicited the longest stories, visual presentation the shortest; audio-visual presentation, despite the visual enrichment of the stimulus, elicited stories of intermediate length.
