Abstract: This paper reports on results on the entropy of the Spanish language. Theyare based on an analysis of natural language for n-word symbols n = 1 to 18,trigrams, digrams, and characters. The results obtained in this work are basedon the analysis of twelve different literary works in Spanish, as well as a279917 word news file provided by the Spanish press agency EFE. Entropy valuesare calculated by a direct method using computer processing and the probabilitylaw of large numbers. Three samples of artificial Spanish language produced bya first-order model software source are also analyzed and compared with naturalSpanish language.
