jean-dominique bauby’s alphabet

I recently watched “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” and the movie has intrigued me ever since.

According to the movie, the French alphabet in order of frequency is:

E S A R I N T U L

O M D P C F B V

H G J Q Z Y X K W

Anyway, are these letters in the correct order? I searched through the good ol’ wiki pages and according to almighty wiki, the French alphabet in order of frequency is:

e
s
a
i
t
n
r
u
l
o
d
c
p
m
é
v
q
f
b
g
h

î
œ
å
ä
c
ë
ĝ
ğ
h
ì
ï
i
j
ñ
ò

You be the judge.

And if you’re curious, here’s the English alphabet in order of frequency of occurrence:
