However, most languages have a characteristic distribution which is strongly apparent in longer texts.
For example, the Japanese Hiragana syllabary contains 46 distinct characters, which is more than most phonetic alphabets, e.g.
the Hawaiian alphabet which has a mere 13 letters, or English which has 26.
No exact letter frequency distribution underlies a given language, since all writers write slightly differently.
Tyga is now defiant about his relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner ...
he doesn't care about the laws prohibiting adults from having sex with minors, and the reality is ... Tyga is telling friends, as far as he's concerned Kylie is more mature than most adults.
She's a millionaire who runs a company and even owns her own home.
The rapper won't squarely say if he's intimate with Kylie, but it's not hard to read between the lines. Law enforcement sources tell us they won't investigate statutory rape involving a 17-year-old unless someone complains, even if the relationship is widely reported.
He says he "doesn't give a f*** about what the law says." He thinks age is relative, and there's nothing "morally wrong" with a mature 17-year-old dating a 25-year-old.
The frequency of letters in text has been studied for use in cryptanalysis, and frequency analysis in particular, dating back to the Iraqi mathematician Al-Kindi (c.
801–873 CE), who formally developed the method (the ciphers breakable by this technique go back at least to the Caesar cipher invented by Julius Caesar, so this method could have been explored in classical times).
Letter frequency analysis gained additional importance in Europe with the development of movable type in 1450 CE, where one must estimate the amount of type required for each letterform, as evidenced by the variations in letter compartment size in typographer's type cases.
