Letter Frequency

Letter Frequency


I took two very interesting charts from Wikipedia to show how frequent each letter is used in the English language.

Letter Frequency Letter Frequency

In the first chart you can see the most popular letter out of all the words in the English language (remember that each letter is used in the English language., it just depends how frequently it appears in the English language) is e, than t, a, o and on. . . In the second chart it is the same statistics but just from a-z, z being the last letter and the least frequent.

The least frequent vowel is u.

The most frequent is e.

To make this fun, I have a cryptogram: All you have to do is define each letter with the numbers below. Tip: Use the charts above to conclude which letters are used the most. The number that you see used the most is probably going to be one of the top letters on the chart.

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
                                                   
__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __
21 25 11 6 4 26 24 21 26 7 14 21 1 12 11 5
__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __
25 2 24 24 16 13 21 16 14 25 24 24 16 13

If you can solve this cryptogram before the 30th of September you’ll be the winner!
