 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Number of straight line segments (chisel strokes) in the capitalized English name of n (excluding spaces and hyphens), counting smooth curves as zero strokes. The 15 letters which are entirely strokes (no curves): A(3), E(4), F(3), H(3), I(1), K(3), L(2), M(4), N(3), T(2), V(2), W(4), X(2), Y(3), Z(3). Those 4 which are entirely curves (and count as zero): C, O, S, U. Those 7 which mix strokes and curves: B(1), D(1), G(2), J(1), P(1), Q(1), R(2). a(16)=16 is a fixed point. The numbers written entirely from stroke-only letters are A163670. LINKS EXAMPLE a(0) = 9 because ZERO has (letter by letter) 3+4+2+0 = 9 straight line segments (chisel strokes). a(1) = 7 because ONE has 0+3+4 = 7 strokes. a(20) = 18 because TWENTY (all strokes) has 2+4+4+3+2+3 = 18 strokes.
