 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A227290 Repeatedly map numbers to number of letters in English name (A005589); sequence gives first number that needs n steps to get to 4. 1
 4, 0, 3, 1, 11, 23, 323, 1103323373373373373373373373373 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Based on the observation by Diane Karloff that the trajectory of A005589 always converges to 4. 40311123323 (concatenation of the first seven terms) is the first time prime is obtained when concatenating k first initial terms of the sequence. - Jonathan Vos Post, Jul 06 2013, edited by Antti Karttunen, Jul 25 2013 LINKS EXAMPLE "eleven" has 6 letters, "six" has 3 letters, "three" has 5 letters, "five" has 4 letters. So a(4)=11, as A005589^4(11)=4 and 11 is the first such number. But a(3)=1, because "one" is the same length as "six". CROSSREFS Cf. A016037.
