WHAT DOES WPM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Words per minute

Words per minute, commonly abbreviated WPM, is a measure of input or output speed. For the purpose of typing measurement, each word is standardized to be five characters or keystrokes long, including spaces and punctuation. For example, the phrase "I run" counts as one word, but "rhinoceros" and "let's talk" both count as two. Conversely, Characters per minute, or CPM, is equal to the WPM measurement times five.
