Fascinating stuff but here goes what I found in addition:

  • The most commonly used alphabet in English language is "E"
  • Because we have 26 alphabets don't mean we have 26 sounds. Some letter have more than one sound depending on which word they are used in. For example "C" in the words "City" and "Cold"
  • The most less frequently used letter is "Z"
  • The word "THE" is the most common word in English language.
  • The longest word in English which doesn’t use the letter E is floccinaucinihilipilification.
  • A containing all 26 letters of the English alphabet is called a pangram. Popular pangrams include: “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” or  “Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.”
