    [ Abstract: We shall restate in detail our 1959 objections to Simon's 1955 model for the Pareto-Yule-Zipf distribution. Our objections are valid quite irrespectively of the sign of p-1, so that most of Simon's (1960) reply was irrelevant. We shall also analyze the other points brought up in that reply. ]

    [ Abstract: Dr. Mandelbrot's original objection (1959) to using the Yule process to explain the phenomena of word frequencies were refuted in Simon (1960), and are now mostly abandoned. The present "reply" refutes the almost entirely new arguments introduced by Dr. Mandelbrot in his "final note", and demonstrates again the adequacy of the models in (1955). ]

    [ Abstract: This note takes issue with a recent criticism by Dr. B. Mandelbrot of a certain stochastic model to explain word-frequency data. Dr. Mandelbrot's principal empirical and mathematical objections to the model are shown to be unfounded. A central question is whether the basic parameter of the distributions is larger or smaller than unity. The empirical data show it is almost always very close to unity, Sometimes slightly larger, sometimes smaller. Simple stochastic models can be constructed for either case, and give a special status, as a limiting case, to instances where the parameter is unity. More generally, the empirical data can be explained by two types of stochastic models as well as by models assuming efficient information coding. The three types of models are briefly characterized and compared. ]
