So if users search for "syringe" those exact matches will always show up higher than "syringes".
If a user searches for "syringes", if you set
typo_tokens_threshold=10000, then you should see more matches for "syringe", if there are less than 10000 results with "syringes". But these typo corrected results, will still show up below the exact matches for "syringes"
