Well, not every expert agrees that "ey" is a diphthong. It's a
controversial issue.

This may have the same situation. Some linguists may say is a diphthong
and hence one syllable, while others may say this is two syllables.

BTW, This list is mostly about computing-related aspects of the Persian

linguistic background. Linguistic discussions will probably not get
anywhere here, and are off-topic IMHO.
