Is can follow a different pattern.

Is is is?

"Is is is?" is "Is is is?"

"'Is is is?' is 'Is is is?'" is 'Is is is?' is 'Is is is?'"

"'"Is is is?" is "Is is is?"' is '"Is is is?" is "Is is is?"' is '"Is is is?" is "Is is is?"' is '"Is is is?" is "Is is is?"'"

etc.

(Note that parsing grammatically correct English sentences is an NP hard problem.)

    I feel like I've seen this claim mentioned before here on PM, although I can't find anything via super search. It's not something that I've heard about anywhere else. Do you have a source for this? A natural reduction from, say, 3-SAT to English grammaticity would be quite interesting indeed. I wonder if the subset of English grammar that is used consists of fairly standard constructions, and not obscure things that native speakers may disagree on.
