Re: Standard German and Dialects?

I remember seeing one documentary, and it mentioned that they noticed that one encrypted message had no "L"s in it. As the machine always changed the letters type in, they came to the conclusion that the message sent was something like -

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

- or similar
