Languages A and B and the prefix-midfix-suffix decomposition

Comparative plots of word segment frequencies

See my voynich pages, especially the prefix-midfix-suffix. decomposition notes, for the terminology. You can also see my notebook with the detailed procedures and data files and I used to generate these plots.

Note that the plots use a logarithmic scale, except that zero frequency is plotted as 0.5. I.e., the dots on the left edge of the plot are words that occur in language B but not in language A; and symmetrically for the bottom edge.

Roots ("midfixes")
