Yeah I'm not sure myself. The third declension is a lot more common than it is in Latin as it also applies to the majority of loanwords so I'd imagine it has to be at least 33%.

Oh sorry I should have made that clear. The ones without pairs only change the stem in the singular dative/genitive form. 2 syllable nouns ending in an unstressed VC basically always drop the second vowel. In those without the change, the vowel is stressed in the second syllable, hence no change.

I've got the whole list. I was just worried about making posts too long. I'll edit them into the post

Thanks! I'll post some below. Keep your eyes out for when I cover the future/conditional tenses as syntax gets pretty crazy there
