I am trying to fill in the code for the updateLetterCount() method, which should be quite similar to the updateDigramCount() method.
However, I am stuck. Any suggestions would be helpful! I am having trouble with defining the letter variable,
because I know it has to be defined for the Map. Any idea about how to go about doing so?

What is the algorithm you are using for counting letters?

It is shown in the getLetterCount() method.

That seems a standard method to do it; you will find something very similar in the Java™ Tutorials.
Why are you using a tree map? Why are you missing out the last character?
