Speech is:   
LESS COMPLEX than writing in terms of structure, in fact sentences are shorter ans there is less use of subordination
LESS EXPLICIT than writing, logical relationship may be not encoded in the text
MORE CONTEXTUALIZED, more dependent on shared situation and background knowledge
MORE PERSONALLY INVOLVED, less abstract and detached than writing
LESS PLANNED and organized than writing.
