During a tour of Austria-Hungary in December 1910, Debussy met a young Hungarian Francophile composer, Géza Vilmos Zágon (1889–1918). The latter sent him the manuscript of the Pierrot lunaire, a cycle of six melodies from the collection of the Belgian poet Albert Giraud. Debussy reviews the vocal line, emphasizing that the corrections he has made almost all concern “prosodic accents.” This rereading of a work by a young composer is a unique case for Debussy and testifies not only to his openness to young composers, but also to his interest in Giraud's poems, as André Schaeffner had so rightly anticipated in 1953 in his article “Variations Schoenberg.” It also reveals Debussy's deep sensitivity to the French language verse and rhythm.

Zipf's law was used to qualify all the key-words of documents in a data set. This qualification was used to build a graphical
representation of the resulting indicator in each document. The graphical resolution leads to a document dispatch in a three
dimensional space. This graphical representation was used as an information retrieval tool without using any keyword. The
presentation of a case study is internet available. The graph is drawn in Virtual Reality Markup Language (VRML) allowing
a dynamic picture which is linked to a Database Management System (FreeWais). The experimentation was drawn to get a first
impression of documents data set by querying without any keyword.
