How to analyse bigrams?

Bigrams are used in various encryptions in cryptography. There are 2 main modes of use of bigrams:

- A bigram may appear when a single character is encrypted by 2 characters.

Example: The Polybius cipher encodes each letter with a bigram representing coordinates in a grid. A can become BC

Encryptions that transforms grams into bigrams can be broken by retransforming then into a mono-alphabetic substitution.

- A bigram can come from the encryption of another bigram

Example: The Playfair cipher encodes the message by bigram by replacing it with another one. AB can become CD
