Do you mean the language has an alphabet of 4 letters, or that there are four
distinct alphabets of say 26 letters?

Using all 4 we have,
\$\displaystyle 4^4=256\$
Using 3 we have,
\$\displaystyle 4^4=64\$
Using 2 we have,
\$\displaystyle 4^2=16\$
Using 1 we have,
\$\displaystyle 4^1=4\$
Thus, in total we have 340
