Okay I made one just now:
蚊閣下が価格掛かったか蛾閣下か価格掛かったか加賀閣下が書かなかった
Ka kakka ga kakaku kakatta ka ga kakka ga kakaku kakatta ka kaga kakka ga kakanakatta.
His Excellency Kaga didn't write down if His Excellency Mosquito cost the price or if His Excellency Moth cost the price.

This is of questionable meaning: "cost the price" makes as much sense in Japanese as in English.

On funny vowel sequences, Spanish:

[ese.ˈð̞ia u.ˈi.a.i.o.ˈi.a.a.ewˈlalja]
Ese día huía y oía a Eulalia.
'That day I was running away and was hearing Eulalia.' (doesn't make much sense, but still grammatically correct)

EDIT: made the vowel sequence even longer.

From Genoese,
"A éia e âe?"
"Does it have wings?"

Modern Genoese:
"A l'aveiva e ae?"
Italian:
"Aveva le ali?"

If we reconstructed the etymons in VL we'd have:
ovem illam illam est ad illa(m).

The Latin word ea is classical and didn't survive; ea comes from illa.
Also the word for sheep is oaie, oaia is already "the sheep" because of the postponed VL article *ilam; and the next word aia is a demonstrative also from ille ultimately.

Here is the above in sane orthography:
Ithidh i i. (ScG)

The morpheme breakdown is ee-ee/ith-idh (eat-FUT) so the EEEE is a product of morpheme boundaries and not a thing on its own. Still, this, ladies and gentlemen, is why you should not use the digraph <ee> to spell /i:/.

NB: I don't know about Manx grammar but in Scottish Gaelic this sentence would only work for an "it" that is grammatically feminine.

if you actually want to search for something on this site, it's better to use google and type 'site:http://www.incatena.org' before your query.

Wiktionary gives the Vietnamese equivalent to 生物学, so somehow I suspect that 生学 is an abbreviation or so?

Oiche mhath sounds strange in some dialect where it is pronounced like to my ears, e:j6 wa:ij.

Another word I find strange is oiseau in French, it uses all 5 of the French vowels.
