Thew reason for their comparison is that they all share a common symbol set ?(A-Z). It has been found, through investigations that statistically Malay and Indonesian languages character frequencies are very close to each other. For example, character "A" "N", and "E" in both Malay and Indonesian languages have frequencies (19%, 20.4%), (Q10%, 9.33%) and (9%, 8.28%), respectively. However the case of English is different, where characters "E", "T" and "A" come with three highest frequencies occurring letters, respectively.

Moreover, for all three languages, last four characters, W, x,y,z" , also exhibit lowest usage in their respective languages.
