comment How feasible is word-level frequency analysis over English (or any language)?
As you are encrypting words from documents, The probabilities of which words would appear together also could be leveraged in breaking this. Modern Language Translation techniques, Spam filter engines etc are based on finding the probabilities of next possible word in a sentence and things like that. So it should be possible to find out

isn't it the probability 1 / (( 2^n ) * (2^(n-1))) ?

comment Should we sign-then-encrypt, or encrypt-then-sign?
@D.W , There is possibility that an attacker could launch denial of service , if the message should be decrypted first in order to verify the signature. The attacker could simply pump in large amounts of garbage and make the decryptor deplete its resources, assuming the message is huge and signature is less in length.
