 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS 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 REFERENCES E.
