Another Fine Addition by BAIPA Member Tom Finnegan
Time to scuttle the leaky “fishing” boat that, a couple of weeks ago, asked if readers could conjure up a sentence with repetition of one word multiple times. Miscommunication (for which I accept responsibility) resulted in my not clarifying that the idea was to have multiple CONSECUTIVE uses of a repeated word—and no intervening words. My fault! So, as we send the fishing expedition to a watery grave, here’s my submission—with FIVE consecutive repetitions of a word in a grammatically logical and at least plausible (even if diabolical) sentence.
I’m standing at a corner where two walls meet. I’ve asked two graffiti artists to spray-paint the word “THAT” in their own style. Here at my side, this young man has painted “THAT” on the wall behind him. Over there, a young woman artist has painted the same word in her own style on the other wall. Now, I find this THAT right here, done by this young man, rather nice. But . . .
I think that that THAT that that young woman painted is terrific!
