That

.

Seven “thats” may follow each other, and make sense.

“For be it known that we may safely write

Or say that ‘that thatʹ that that man wrote was right;

Nay, eʹen that that that, that ‘that Thatʹ has followed,

Through six repeats, the grammar’s rule has hallowed;

And that that that that that ‘that Thatʹ began

Repeated seven times is right, denyʹt who can.”


“My lords, with humble submission that that I say is this: That that that that thatʹ that that gentleman has advanced is not that that he should have proved to your lordships.”—Spectator, No. 86.
