a. the city of Buffalo, New York, which is used as a noun adjunct in the sentence and is followed by the animal;
n. the noun buffalo, an animal, in the plural (equivalent to “buffaloes” or “buffalos”), in order to avoid articles;
v. the verb “buffalo” meaning to bully, confuse, deceive, or intimidate.
So with that marker (a, n, v) placed in the sentence, they are:
Buffaloa buffalon Buffaloa buffalon buffalov buffalov Buffaloa buffalon
THE buffalo FROM Buffalo WHO ARE buffaloed BY buffalo FROM Buffalo, buffalo buffalo FROM Buffalo.
