Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.American bison are called buffalo. A kind of bison that comes from Buffalo, New York, could be called a Buffalo buffalo. Recall that there is a verb to buffalo that means "to overwhelm, to intimidate." Imagine that New York State bison intimidate one another: (The) Buffalo buffalo (that) Buffalo buffalo (often) buffalo (in turn) buffalo (other) Buffalo buffalo" (208).
Ditto. Especially because I just spent an entire frickin' summer in Buffalo (the city). --JulieWortman
It should be at least noted that any sentence consisting of "Buffalo( buffalo)^n." is a valid english sentence for all n, and the city name definition isn't needed. The only other known sentence group like this in english is "Quine( quine)^n." Has something to do with how verbs that take an object conjugate. You need a verb, which is also a noun, that doesnt conjugate to take an object. --NickJohnson
