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. Joseph Jones jjones[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] University of British Columbia Library
