Description: : In A.P.Chehov's stories "Dama s sobachkoj" ("Lady with dog") [1] makes total of words 2134, and their frequency - 5152 by a technique [2]. Dependences of frequency of words on their quantity, on their length, since the greatest size, the logarithm of frequency of words from the logarithm of lengths of words, since the greatest size, frequency of words from quantity of words are investigated at length of a word from 16 up to 5 letters, quantity of words from length of a word, frequency of words from length of words, cumulative frequency of words and cumulative quantity of words from length of words, since the greatest, the logarithm of cumulative frequency and the logarithm of cumulative quantity of words from the logarithm of length of words, since the greatest. For reception of adequate mathematical dependences experimental data resulted to cumulate and represented as logarithms. It is shown, that frequency of a word is inversely proportional to its length, the logarithm of lengths of words and is direct pr0oportional to cumulative frequency, cumulative quantity of words, logarithms: frequencies of words, quantities of words, cumulative quantity of words and cumulative frequency of words. The specified dependences investigated on the linear, sedate, logarithmic equations and polynoms of the second and third degrees. Relative speed in sedate dependence for the given dependences can be positive or negative and serves for an estimation of the concrete text. Logarithms of frequency are increased with reduction of length of words from 1,0986 up to 6,9275, the logarithm of quantity of words - from 1,0986 up to 3,5835, the logarithm of cumulative frequency - from 1,0986 up to 10,929 and the logarithm of cumulative quantity of words - from 1,0986 up to 9,1817. Thus the logarithm of length of words falls from 2,7726 up to 0. That is curves of logarithms of cumulative frequency and logarithms of cumulative quantity of words from the logarithm of length of words will be im...
