The article deals with the regularities, with which relative frequencies of words length comply, when dividing the whole line of relative frequencies into several intervals. In case of French there are three intervals: lengths 1-2 (linear function); lengths 3-10 (linear function); lengths 11 and more (geometrical progression with quotient less than unity). In case of the German and modern Greek languages there are four intervals: lengths 1-3 and 4-6 (second order polynomial); lengths 7-11 (linear function); lengths 12 and more (geometrical progression with quotient less than unity). It is likely that similar regularities are inherent in a varying degree for all literary texts in these languages.
