comment The differences between 速さ, 早さ, and 速度
Here's what my Japanese friend told me: In a daily conversation, people might think that 速さ is just a speed itself and 速度 shows more specifically the degree of how fast the speed is. Actually, this difference is commonly discussed in physics or math class. Using an idea of vectors in mathematics, 速さ is explained as a vector (its orientation + the magnitude of the vector) and 速度 is the magnitude of the speed. As for the typing speed, タイピングの速さ is commonly used as Google showed you.

Oh yeah, you're right. I just glanced at the first few results and counted. After searching again (and using quotation marks for exact phrases) I get 395,000, 82,400, 24,700 and 480,000 respectively.

revised Difference between progressive verb forms and i-adjectives
I changed "verb form" to "verb counterpart," since I didn't mean to say that the verbs are derived from the adjectives or vice versa.

So, (disregarding semantics) does 太っている neccessarily imply that the noun was previously in a state of not being fat, but later got fat? As opposed to 太い which has no such implications?
