Why does spd-say stop speaking after a short while in the command line?

I've noticed that whenever I'm in the command line and I try spd-say, it always stops shortly after it starts, and doesn't finish what I've told it to say.

For instance,

spd-say "moo moo farms are the best cow farms ever. They say moo, they don't pollute the earth, and they give milk. Visit moo moo farms today for only twelve easy payments of seventeen ninety five weekly!"

will only say moo moo farms are the best cow farms. They say moo, they don't pollute the earth, and they gi; and then it cuts off.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here? I'm using Linux Mint 19.0 on Aspire 5610Z.
