An observational framework to the zipfian analysis among different languages: Studies to indonesian ethnic biblical texts

The paper introduces the used of Zipfian statistics to observe the human languages by using the same (meaning) corpus/corpora but different in grammatical and structural utterances. We used biblical texts since they contain corpuses that have been most widely and carefully translated into many languages. The idea is to reduce the possibility of noise came from the meaning of the texts in distinctive language. The result is that the robustness of the Zipfian law is observable and some statistical differences are discovered between English and widely used national and several ethnic languages in Indonesia. The paper ends by modestly propose further possible framework in interdisciplinary approaches to human language evolution.
