In some Psychology resources, I found this sentence:

"Pronunciation time determined by time constraints rather than structural limitations. A direct relationship was found between size of digit span and pronunciation time."

I have a vague idea what this is on about, but can somebody tell me what this means in plain, simple English please?

I think it is Memory

It just means that the study found that the number of digits (numbers) was (positively I assume) correlated with how long it took to pronounce the number. So the longer the word, the long the time it took to pronounce the word
