These 433 syllable types account for 98.1% of the total syllable token count; the remaining 1.9% is accounted for by approximately 2200 other types.
Note that c appears as a syllable (rank 150) because it is the transcription of the word , which in text attaches itself to the following word and is syllabified with it, however all IPLR analyses are done at the single-word level after the text is tokenized. The same happens with (ʝ).
