On the other hand, the time needed to catalogue multiple records hashed to a single table bucket (by collision handling) increases at least linearly with the number catalogued there, so it happens that collision resolution time, averaged over all buckets, is minimized by choosing a hash function that is most uniform in its distribution over bucket addresses.
This n-gram counting is most efficiently implemented by a hash table: each n-gram is directly taken as a key, is hashed to a table address, and (after possible collision resolution) an accumulator at that address is advanced.
A common cause of nonuniformity in hashed values can be traced to a bias in the frequency of keys that are regularly spaced, that is, by keys separated by multiples of some value in the ring.
The first n-gram is hashed directly; the remainder are recursively hashed.
When the 26,662 dictionary entries are hashed into 256 bins, the resulting distribution is still not significantly different from uniform (X[.
