I recently read this:
Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo
It deploys the fact that "Buffalo" has different meanings:
- The animal buffalo.
- To buffalo somebody, e.g. bully them.
- A proper noun.
Furthermore, the plural form of "Buffalo1" can be just "Buffalo". This sentence means: (subscript corresponds to the No. of meaning)
Buffalo3 Buffalo1 (pl.) Buffalo3 Buffalo1 (pl.) Buffalo2 Buffalo2 Buffalo3 Buffalo1 (pl.)
i.e. Some buffalos from the place of Buffalo, who were bullied by some other buffalos also from the place of Buffalo, were to bully other buffalos again from the place of Buffalo!
Feeling shocked of how unpleasant the buffalos from Buffalo were, I came up with an idea: can we create a sentence like this, as long as possible? Capitalization problems can be ignored, since THEY CAN BE BYPASSED BY ALL-CAPS! But trailing -s, -ing, etc. are better left out.
Any idea? :)
This is quite related to this one, but not exactly the same: that question said:
With that background, the goal of this question is to create a sentence made up of the most different homonyms of the same word. This is not a challenge to find the longest sentence consisting of one word.
While mine is to find the longest sentence consisting of one word. :)
