Subject: consonant frequency

I am currently working on a statistical analysis of pronunciation among

various groups in Chicago and was wondering if anyone knows of a

publication that gives the frequency of phonemes or clusters in onset or

coda position in any variety of spoken or written English. The only

reference I've found so far dates from 1923.

With thanks in anticipation
