If you are designing a keyboard layout, then it is important to focus on input text that are commonly used, such as in online chat, online comment, simple writing. Not from journalism, poetry, novels.

Vast majority of keyboard users, are likely to type just common chat text only, not printed books text, such as novels and academic text.
