So I'm thinking of a play where this joke happens, but it's with a coded message, not another language. Would that be this trope, and if not, is there a trope for that, and if there's a trope for that, should it be linked to from the description of this trope?
What on earth is going on with the real life examples? They mostly aren't "similar-sounding sentences with drastically different meanings", they're things like "'malo malo malo malo' is a possible sentence in Latin".
I can kind of see how it started, there's one word that can have multiple meanings, but in an ordinary sentence the context would make it obvious.

How well does it match the trope?
