Something like this could explain why some characters usually appear as initials or finals.

To try to support this I guess you would have to look at letter frequencies by character position within the word, to see if there are a lot of different character alternatives in a position or only a few. (Of course, 0 and 1 could each be represented by several characters, too.)

I seems like it would be hard to reconcile with the variations of word length and the existence of 1-character words though.
