    saint sentence

    I'd like to say "very important sentence" "the one sentence" etc. Can I use the phrase: "saint sentence" or it seems funny? I'm not not native english, so i cant make decision. :)

    Thanks.

    .
    Yes, very odd. I wouldn't know what you meant. Try 'key sentence' or 'critical sentence'.

    Bad news. :(
    I wanted to play on words and thought "saintence" would be a nice one.

    I doubt that any English speaker would get it.
