COMMENTS

After a(7), the sequence contains only terms of the form a(i) * 10^(3*k) and  a(i) * 10^(3*k) + a(j) for 1 <= i, j <= 7, where the name of 10^(3*k) is useless, e.g., 10^6 (million), 10^9 (billion), 10^12 (trillion), 10^27 (octillion), 10^30 (nonillion), ... (see links for large number names). - Michael S. Branicky, Jan 01 2021

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 30 because 30 is the second integer without an e, s or u in its English name.
