Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A072959 Using the US English names for the nonnegative integers, assign each letter a numerical value as in A073327 (A=1, B=2, ..., Z=26), treat the name as a base-27 integer, and convert to decimal. 2

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS For names with spaces (e.g., ONE HUNDRED), treat each space as a '0', or placeholder, in the base-27 system. (Therefore ONE HUNDRED = 3196540902115084.) English name for the number n transliterated into Lee Sallows's base-27 system. REFERENCES M. J. Halm, Sequences (Re)discovered, Mpossibilities 81 (Aug. 2002). LINKS M. J. Halm, Jootsy Calculus. FORMULA In Sallows's system, space = 0, A = 1, B = 2, etc. to Z = 26, so that words and phrases, even number names, can be transformed into numbers. EXAMPLE a(1) = 11318 because o(729) + n(27) + e = 10935 + 378 + 5 = 11318. a(2) = 15216 because "TWO" in base 27 gives 20*27^2 + 23*27 + 15 = 15216.
