    Below is a 100% grammatically correct conversation that Yoda and someone else can have in English:

    Yoda: Will Will Smith smith?
    Person: Will Smith will smith.
    Yoda: (nods in agreement) Smith, Will Smith will.

    Now, without any punctuation marks or contexts, here's what it looks like:

    will will smith smith
    will smith will smith
    smith will smith will

    You gotta love the English language sometimes.

    "I never said she stole my money."

    This sentence means seven different things, all depending on which word you stress.
