Yeah, it is weird. I did more words per minute, yet all of them aren't counted?

I wonder if it doesn't count words were I had to edit a few of them, or if it has an algorithm were it takes keystrokes and words into account? I guess it would be more fair, if a language has more short words than others, although I would expect the software to make an equal mix of 3-8 letter words for each language for fairness.

Seems like you are right! I hit 451 words divided by 5 = 90 WPM.
