Many of the studies have investigated whether the information conveyed by individual words remains constant along discourse. In these cases the basic symbolic unit across which entropy remains constant is the word, that is, the entropy is constant per lexical unit (not per unit of time). On the other hand, some authors have applied a similar principle to sub-lexical levels such as the syllable. Here, it is found that the same syllable receives a longer realization in more informative contexts than in less informative ones. Therefore, what is being kept constant here is the actual information per unit of time (information in syllable divided by syllable length in ms). Both types of studies arrive at a similar conclusion, namely that there is an adjustment in unit length to compensate for informational load, which is argued to remain constant.
However, the conclusions drawn also have notably contradictory implications.

the nonextensive entropy of linguistic sequences, that is, the decay of the entropy rate with approximately with the square root of the text length has been considered as evidence for language belonging to a class of systems referred to as Highly Optimized Tolerance; these are basically the most efficient means of information transmission under complex restrictions.
