The examples of arbitrary star-height given on the wikipedia page on the star-height problem are star-free: On arbitrary alphabet: :\begin{alignat}{2} e_1 &= a_1^* \\ e_2 &= \left(a_1^*a_2^*a_3\right)^*\\ e_3 &= \left(\left(a_1^*a_2^*a_3\right)^*\left(a_4^*a_5^*a_6\right)^*a_7\right)^*\\ e_4 &= \left( \left(\left(a_1^*a_2^*a_3\right)^*\left(...
