The sequence of words is: zero, four, eight, thirteen, twenty-one, thirty, ... (in American English).

Hyphens and spaces are not counted.

This is an English version of the sequence in A139121.

a(0) = 0, a(n+1) = a(n) + A005589(a(n)). - Jonathan Vos Post, Jun 15 2008

EXAMPLE

The second word is "four" (and so a(2)=4), because at the end of the first word we can see four letters to the left.
