The girl ran around the tree and hit the ball.

7 or 9 words, 18 syllables, 13 morphemes; agglutinating

The girl ran around the tree and hit the ball.

11 words*, 15 symbols, 15 syllables, 15 morphemes; isolating

*This is a dubious guess. Except for 矮女, there is no clear polysyllabic word (although it can be broken down to "small woman"). I counted 团驰去 (to run around, literally "round fast go") and 足岩 (to kick, literally "foot hit") as well.

1-girl 1-PST-go.around-Ø 3-tree 1-SIT-run-Ø 1-SUBS-strike-Ø 3-ball

The girl ran around the tree and kicked the ball.
(Literally: "The girl circled the tree, running, and then kicked the ball.")

18 morphemes but because the noun-prefixes are an essential part of the word for the meaning, they are often not counted as separate like this. Also, the -a endings on native Bantu verbs could be thought of as a meaningless affix or as a part of the stem that gets replaced by other morphemes in some situations.
Glossing Abbreviations: COMP = comparative, C = complementiser, ACS / ICS = accessible / inaccessible, GDV = gerundive, SPEC / NSPC = specific / non-specific, AG = agent, E = entity (person, animal, thing)

Well, five years to the day seems like a decent time span for "eventually".
