Subject: phoneme frequencies

The following is my reply to John Higgins's query concerning
phoneme frequencies, which I sent to him directly. He
suggested that I e-mail it to LINGUIST for there might be
more people interested. I have phoneme frequency
distributions from all the following sources, which I can
share with the LINGUIST community.

With best phonostatistic regards,
