I tend to doubt it. The word simply means "something to say."
The only thing the word would possibly indicate is that the Spirit
was giving him the message, but he doesn't seem to be speaking
in tongues here. My own speculation is that Peter gave the
speech in either his native tongue or Greek, and the others, via
their speaking in tongues, translated the speech as it went along.
But I won't go to the wall for that idea :-)
