A correlation coefficient of -O.2832 was found between syllabic intensity of words and the number of strokes typewritten in a given period. The writer's Null Hypothesis that, ”There is no correlation between syllabic intensity of words and the difficulty of typewriting material” was rejected on the 0.1% level. The correlation, however, is high enough only to conclude that syllabic intensity of words is a difficulty factor in typewriting connected paragraph matter. The degree to which this factor affects typewritability is not clearly distinguishable from other factors.
