Crazy And Funny Facts You Should Know

2020年10月25日

 

Dear, Readers.


What a pleasure it is to be back with another installment of Crazy And Funny Facts You Should Know.


The weather is very good in southern Thailand these days.


We are enjoying cool temperatures at the moment.


I also hope you had a memorable weekend.


Today, I have a uniquely fun fact. And, it concerns one of the letters found in the alphabet.


It is the letter, E.


Did you know that;


E or e is the fifth letter and the second vowel letter in the modern English alphabet and the ISO basic Latin alphabet.


The letter makes up 12.702% of the letters in an average text and is the most commonly used letter in English. 

 


The next most frequently-used letter is T, at 9.056%


That is very interesting. I will also show you the 50 most common words. 

 

In order of frequency, they are,


: the, of, and, to, in, a, is, that, for, it, as, was, with, be, by, on, not, he, I, this, are, or, his, from, at, which, but, have, an, had, they, you, were, there, one, all, we, can, her, has, there, been, if, more, when, will, would, who, so, no.


I was also surprised when I first came across this information. One interesting observation is that English borrowed many terms from French and Latin. 


I am sure you will notice the letter “e” more often after reading this article. 


I hope you had a thrill in reading these fun facts. 

Have a wonderful week. I will be back with another installment soon.
