I am thinking of adding more Japanese words or phrases, that have the same pronunciation as には has, to the following sentence.

庭{にわ}には二{に}羽{わ}鶏{にわとり}がいる。

Could you help me to find such words (if any)?

  • I learned a variant of this which featured a mingling of ニワ with ワニ (as in 鰐 "crocodile"). Something to the effect of 鰐は庭にいる. – senshin Nov 19 '15 at 5:02
  • 埴輪 (はにわ), 俄 (にわか), 浪速 (なにわ) – mirka Nov 19 '15 at 9:43

There is a classic extension of this tongue twister that goes like this:

裏庭【うらにわ】には二羽 庭には二羽 ニワトリがいる。
(pronounced as うらにわにわにわにわにわにわにわとりがいる)

裏庭 means backyard.

言葉遊び or 早口言葉 would help you.
For example, すももも桃{もも}も桃{もも}のうち
