* Word-initial phoneme analysis (Part 2)

Now with ~2900 words instead:
Spoiler:
p 3.8%
t 3.8%
k 7.6%
s 10.3%
b 1.8%
d 3.6%
g 6.1%
zˤ 2.7%

m 1.1%
n 2.3%
ŋ 0%
ʃ 5.1%
w 0.4%
j 4.4%
ɣ 1.8%
ʒ 2.7%

r 4.5%
tʃ 2.4%
f 1.7%
h 3.6%
l 2.8%
dʒ 3.3%
v 2.7%
θ 1.7%

a 1.7%
i 5.5%
ɔ 2.7%
u 2.9%
ə 2.1%
e 2.9%
Y 0.9%
ɯ 0.9%
Top 5 word-initial phonemes: /s, k, g, i, ʃ/
Bottom 5 word-initial phonemes: /ŋ, w, Y, ɯ, m/
Alright, so apparently, ʃ could be more common than r (random process) word-initially, so the cute coincidence of spelling out griuskant is lost. Overall, the percentages look quite similar with the smaller set, so I guess the "real" initial-word percentages hover near these values without much fluctuation.

Previous standard deviation = 2.13; New standard deviation = 2.08.
Hence, similar percentages in terms of comparison, though the word-initial phonemes themselves are slightly unbalanced. (An "ideal" dataset of these phonemes approach a standard deviation value of 1.9 for rough balance)

* Total phoneme frequency analysis

Upon gathering some passages with over 200000 graphemes from the novels, this Frequentizer app by cedh was used to perform a total phoneme frequency analysis.
As a phonemic language, phoneme and symbol are virtually the same thing, thus, arranged in griuskant script order:
Spoiler:
p 1.24%
t 2.77%
k 5.43%
s 6.89%
b 0.616%
d 2.86%
g 2.77%
zˤ 3.09%

m 1.02%
n 4.64%
ŋ 0.288%
ʃ 2.02%
w 0.161%
j 1.12%
ɣ 0.2%
ʒ 3.92%

r 5.93%
tʃ 0.899%
f 0.7%
h 1.18%
l 3.3%
dʒ 1.18%
v 2.75%
θ 1.02%

a 10.1%
i 9.64%
ɔ 3.67%
u 7.09%
ə 4.95%
e 7.34%
Y 0.582%
ɯ 0.66%
Top 5 phonemes: /a, i, e, u, s/ (initial: s,k,g,i,ʃ)
Bottom 5 phonemes: /w, ɣ, ŋ, Y, b/ (initial: ŋ,w,Y,ɯ,m)
Initial-phoneme standard deviation 2.08. Total phoneme standard deviation = 2.77.
Hence, the total phoneme distribution in griuskant is slightly unbalanced. (An "ideal" dataset of this phoneme frequency approach a standard deviation value of 2.2 for rough balance)


[Order comparison]
* Although /a/ forms only 1.7% of initial-phonemes, it forms 10.1% of total phonemes, and is the most frequent total phoneme.
* The most frequent initial-phoneme /s/ forms 10.3% of initial phonemes, but only forms 6.89% of total phonemes.
* /i/ is the most frequent vowel initial-phoneme at 5.5%, but is the 2nd most frequent total phoneme at 9.6%.
* The bottom 3 initial-phonemes /ŋ,w,Y/ are amongst the bottom 4 total phonemes.
* The correlation coefficient between the order of total phoneme and initial-phoneme is 0.44. Therefore, they are not similar.

[Miscellanous]
* Half of all phonemes form 64.2% of total phonemes.
* Half the vowel inventory (all of which are in the top 4 total phonemes) form 34.2% of total phonemes.
* The top 4 consonant total phonemes /s, r, k, n/ form 24.7% of the dataset, and they are present in the spelling of griuskant.

I repurposed a new page onto my website to showcase the conscript font, this time with a social media style, like a Twitter post/"tweet".

As usual, if there are any problems with viewing the font or loading the page in general, let me know [:D]

As you step into one of the many cafes in the Ithalgar hyper-region, you take a glance at what's displayed on a common menu. Inspired by this conversation~

Goals from last year: Translate 2 books into griuskant.
This year's achievement: Added 8 books in griuskant. Well, guess I overshot that one :P
Goals for next year:

* More books
I have plans to translate 1 more novel from English literature sources, as well as probably making another beginner/kid's book to complement the conlang textbook.
I shall set more modest goals, this time ;)

* Community presence
In light of making griuskant one of the more accessible conlangs, my neocities website shall feature several pages with exciting content, which are entirely in griuskant.
View this journal page, or check out the social media posts.

* Vocabulary storage
There would be labelling versions in my internal files due to searchability; griuskant A or griuskant B. Acceptance, altlang, analogue; Bestiary, base, breakdown; whatever you want to call it. One should not think of them as separate entities, think of them as expansion packs.

* Conlang textbook
Of course, there will be continual updates to the main guide, such as fixing outdated info and improving clarity, eventhough the current edition is already published.

^To someone who reported that they couldn't see my conscript on my website, thank you! It is fixed. This is why feedback is helpful.

NOW, the journal page is correctly viewable, as well as other places.
