Summary: Combinatorics on words, or sequences, plays important roles in various areas. Many difficult problems were solved with the use of certain combinatorial properties of words. There are several books and surveys devoted to various aspects of combinatorics on words. We shall present new results on sequences of elements in groups and semigroups devoted to three combinatorial properties: repetitively, growth, and permutational property. It is interesting that all these properties are interrelated in the problems we are going to consider.
