Plainglazed, you’ve added even more mystery to rocdocmac’s puzzle. I feel total lack of confidence in this answer:

Egad! It’s Slaughter House 5!

I need a better Babelfish; I feel like the character Easy in Cahoots Macbeth. It is very funny seeing both of you (and presumably the rest of the Den) know what you’re talking about, while I am clueless. Thanks for trying to help, Rocdocmac. :-)

Plainglazed ...

Spoiler

5 is correct.

Answer the second sequence too and then we can reveal the reasons why.

2nd one a bit trickier, isn't it?

That's one possibility!

 

Spoiler

Depending on language:

CH (Scottish/German ”ch”), Χ (Greek chi/Russian xa), Ĥ (Esperanto), phonetic χ

or

Š (Croatian), phonetic ʃ

Spoiler

 

In the first instance (E I S H 5), 4 letters plus one numeral occur in the sequence. No pronunciation involved.

In the second case (T M O CH 0), "CH" is not a pronunciation, but merely a representation of the digraph "ch". Three  letters, one digraph and one numeral involved.

 

I called the original OP an interjection sequence since the word "eish" (pronounced "aysh") incidentally appears in the sequence. It has nothing to do with the solution, however! You can google its meaning.

something to do with unicode maybe? it can't have to do with the order of the letters of the alphabet... I have a feeling my mind is too burnt out on organic chemistry to puzzle this one out.

Seems pretty obscure. Gave up and found it using Google. But on the other hand, 

You may have just inspired me to learn more of the "language" beyond S and O. So thanks for that.

Another derailed train of thought:

Equilateral, Isosceles, Scalene, Hyperbolic(?), 5-dimensional (???)

 

 

I like this fresh approach Ed, but there is actually a very, very simple explanation!

Not the order, correct.

I can clearly see that you've got it!
