    Default a cow is a cow is a cow

    Dear teachers,

    I understand that the title just means "a cow is a cow"

    Why could people say it in that way? My friend told me that they just use it to emphasize, which I can hardly imagine a context for...

    thanks :)

    It's a paraphrase of 'a rose is a rose is a rose', which is a famous line by Gertrdude Stein.
