I’ve always been a bit skeptical of the etaoni... Letter frequencies in English vary considerably depending on whether types or tokens are considered as well as on the type of writing (e.g. academic writing will contain a much higher percentage of latinate forms). I suspect h and f (two letters with ascenders) have much higher frequencies than the above would indicate given that they occur in many common function words (the, this, of, for etc.)
