Subject: frequency in English
A question that came into the library: what is the frequency
distribution of letters in the English language. I'd seen
that one before and could walk to a fairly decent answer.
Then I was asked, what about frequency distribution with
respect to the letter's position in the word. I suggested
rooting around in the area of cryptanalysis. Can anyone
point us to any specific source on this? Thanks.
