(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A261159 List the length of chunks of letters different from 'e', when the sequence is spelled out in French: this is the lexicographically first such sequence of nonnegative integers. 3
5, 7, 1, 11, 2, 1, 3, 13, 2, 2, 1, 3, 12, 13, 0, 7, 3, 11, 1, 5, 41, 12, 0, 7, 1, 5, 11, 2, 1, 7 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

Called "Perec's sequence" by E. Angelini, with reference to Perec's 300 page novel "La disparition", lacking the letter 'e'.

EXAMPLE

The sequence spelled out in French reads: cinq, sEpt, un, onzE, dEux, un, trois, trEize, ...

Counting the length of chunks of letters different from 'E' ("cinqs", "ptunonz", "d", "uxuntroistr", ...) yields: 5, 7, 1, 11, ..., which reproduces the sequence.
