The analysis includes: the structure, the distribution of lengths and frequencies, the position of letters, the n-grams, the relationship between vocabulary and corpus volume (Zipf-Mandelbrot law) the entropy and the equivalent vocabulary. Some comparisons are made with the Spanish general language and with the USA surnames.
