Ask Marilyn: What Letters Are Typed Most Often?
Anonymous in Tuscumbia, Alabama, writes:
Marilyn: I have used eight letters on my computer keyboard far more than any of the others. Some of the labels are worn away completely and the others are almost gone. The letters are D, E, F, L, O, R, S, and T. Are these letters universally used more than others? Or is this simply a matter of my personal use?
The order of typed usage of English letters is as follows:
1) E, 2) T, 3) A, I, N, O S, 4) H, 5) R, 6) D,
7) L, 8) U, 9) C, M, 10) F, 11) W, Y, 12) G, P,
13) B, 14) V, 15) K, 16) Q, 17) J, X, 18) Z
One note: You may find that your own keys are worn more on the letters of your name and other words you type often.
