Can any of y'all form sentences like "James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher" or "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo"?

I've thought about this in English a few times, and it seems to me that at least in English, almost any word can be repeated twice (even if at the end of one phrase and the beginning of another, or etc).

However, I haven't tested this out with my conlangs. Some of them would be impossible (the 'to be' ones for example, as well as 'had had' as it is a grammatical case), while others may still work. Word order may also get in the way, but I'll have to get back to you on that.

There is no polysemy in my conlang, so a sentence like those in English wont happen easily. But words may still be repeated theoretically any number of times, but with exponentially decreasing probability the more repeated words we speak about. Here's an example repeating a word thrice:

'ojo 'iram 'iram 'iram
"a delphinid gave a delphinid a delphinid"

As of yet, no, but it may stem from the lack of vocab most of my languages have. Wink My most extensive two are still only about 2100 words, and I've been working on their revisions so intensely that perhaps a third of the words have been lost as obsolete.
