IMHO it would mostly suffice, and indeed be interesting in itself, to simply list all the two-letter (and three-letter) sequences in the text. One usually has biases there too! I dont think any natlang has so many "nd", "dr" or "ndr" sequences as some of my conlangs. I simply happen to like those sequences; "ld" and "ldr" too. Now for the real challenge: a letter-sequence-statistics plus word-generator in javascript. That might attract people to conlanging: "enter some words or names, whose sound is pleasing/exciting/whatever to your ear -- from one or several languages -- and klick the button!" /BP ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ B.Philip Jonsson <bpj@...> <melroch@...> Solitudinem faciunt pacem appellant!
