Current Word Strength Mechanism

Can someone give me the current state of how word strength is calculated. Going through my vocab. list I see some words that are 1 month+ that are at full strength while some words have completely decayed in less than a week.

From the forums I know that if you peek this lowers the strength, but what about getting the sentence wrong during practice or completely skipping it? Sometimes due to time limits I will skip the longer sentences during practice mode. In this situation, would I just be better off letting the time run out?

An interesting question. I also skip like fury when I know I have no chance of typing in a sentence of 10+ words in German, let alone translating it from English, in the time available.
