Hi gang,

An idle question. English has a relatively low entropy as a language. Don't recall the exact figure, but if you look at words that start with "q" it is very low indeed.

What about other languages? Does anyone know the relative entropy of other alphabetic languages? What about the entropy of ideographic languages? Pictographic? Hieroglyphic?
