    Hey, wondering if it is possible to write a sentence in a circle in which, if a reader was to start at any point, the sentence (or phrase) would still make sense.

    If anyone would like to try, your guessing and effort is appreciated and shall be praised.

    The family sold the house generations ago, but things have come full circle and one of their descendants lives there now.

    That was splendid effort cosmictraveler. I could not have put something, as you have, together.

    "If a reader was to start at any point, the sentence (or phrase) would still make sense."

    Am I missing something?
    "generations ago, but things have come full circle and one of their descendants lives there now the family sold the house"
    "things have come full circle and one of their descendants lives there now the family sold the house generations ago, but"
    "and one of their descendants lives there now the family sold the house generations ago, but things have come full circle"
    don't make sense to me.

    I doubt this is possible with anything much beyond a very short (two or four word?) sentence in English because we depend on word order so much. It would be easier in something which is strongly case marked.
