Hi, there are a few consecutive full stops and exclamation marks in this long text file. (something like ........ and !!!)

From the given profile it seems like each of these punctuations is counted as one sentence. Aren't we supposed to remove those consecutive punctuations? Or does it actually not matter?

I also encountered this issue as I had significantly fewer sentences then the sample provided, as I has initially tr -s [.!] as you'd think that the spaces between don't really count as sentences
