However, MLRs are very short, 5.4 and 7.6 syllables though part of this is due to the high number of minimal responses, though the number of words is slightly higher than normal, 349 for Ayaka and 430 for Nanami. We do see a high rate of meaningless syllables for both participants, which is a bit unusual for female speakers.
