I don't think this works quite right. Compare the output from the following two runs:

@l = repeated('this dog a round', 'this dog a pound', 1, 3); @l = repeated('this dog a round', 'this dog a pound', 1, 4);
UPDATE: Here's an 85-byte version that returns all the matches:
sub repeated { ($s,$_,$m,$n)=@_;my@p;for$i($m..$n){$s=~$1&&push@p,$&while/\b(?=((\w+\ +b ?){$i}))/g}@p }
