Inspiration:
This question was inspired by Word sets with no repeating letters

Rules:

  • Sentences can be of any length.
  • Every letter used in this sentence, must be used n times.
  • n can be any number.
  • Capitals/Punctuation do not count.
  • No dialogue!

Objective:
The objective is to find the longest sentence which abides by the rules and clarifications.

Length Measuring:
The way your sentence is measured is by characters, including spaces, and punctuation!

Further Clarifications:

  • The sentence cannot consist of mainly the same word repeated, or the same 2, etc.
  • You cannot make up new words or names.
  • It has to be in English.
  • No uncommon names.

  • $\begingroup$ I think giving an example would clarify the question. It seems a little confusing to me. $\endgroup$ – CyanogenCX Jan 26 '15 at 23:29

    $\begingroup$ Would it be like if this was a sentence: go go go ---- each letter is repeated three times $\endgroup$ – CyanogenCX Jan 26 '15 at 23:31

    $\begingroup$ Any sentence that repeats no letters then combines with an anagram of that sentence meets the requirements for this problem, yes? $\endgroup$ – fredsbend Jan 27 '15 at 6:16

Sentence

I'm the master's nightmarish, gorgonian hatemonger, his moth-eaten gonorrhoea, smothering mightiest heroism, thrashing egomania's (or, to me, ignorant mismanagement's) strong-arm mishmash or staggering high treason.

Length: 215

N: 16

Letters: AEGHIMNORST (11 total)

Produced by interleaving and manually modifying multiple computer-generated anagram fragments. With more work it should be possible both to improve the readability and extend it further.

Not sure if the convention is to add a new answer or edit my old one, but here's a new and rather saucy attempt:


Sentence: The tight-shoed thigh-slapping puzzle nudist, polo pants unzipped and full of gaffing stuff, laughs off a dozen glazed pizza-sized doughnut holes!

  • $\begingroup$ Nice! You should add in the total character count (since that's the main scoring method). I count it as 110. I don't think using a single word twice will invalidate it, though. It's definitely not "mainly the same word repeated". $\endgroup$ – Set Big O Jan 28 '15 at 16:30
