Abstract: This paper presents data concerning the vocabulary and the relative frequency of occurrence of the speech sounds of telephone conversation. Tables are given showing the most frequently used words, the syllabic structure of the words, the relative occurrences of the sounds, and, for each vowel, the percentage distribution of the consonants which precede and follow by:   The phoneme identification process of an automatic speech recognition system may be aided through the use of statistics of phoneme occurrence in conversational English. These statistics are also applicable to the fields of linguistics and speech, to teaching English as a foreign language and to speech by:

It seems like what you're looking for is a speech corpus from which you could extract out frequency counts of the different phones of the language. If so, of the various corpora available online, I'd recommend starting here: Santa Barbara Corpus of Spoken American English; The .   This paper by Hayden calculates the frequency of English phonemes but I think you might want the frequency of spelling patterns for each phoneme. That is the kind of data that would be or importance to a phonics teacher. You can check out G. Dewey.

In Forrest et al. ~!, a series of FFTs was calculated every 10 ms from the onset of the word-initial obstruent. Each FFT was treated as a ran-. Letter frequency is simply the amount of times letters of the alphabet appear on average in written language. Letter frequency analysis dates back to the Iraqi mathematician Al-Kindi (c. – AD), who formally developed the method to break ciphers. Letter frequency analysis gained importance in Europe with the development of movable type in AD, where one must estimate the amount of.
