4. is marked as .5 because there are 2 words with a voiceless trill, which I'm not sure is significant enough to make a it 0 but I don't feel like that's quite equal to a 1 that say, Icelandic would have
69
On 5. I'm considering /v/ the phoneme and [w] the allophone because that seems to be what it is but different sources disagree with each other
