Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?

Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


After they had all heard and digested the recording, Jock Linkumdoddie asked: "any thoughts?" and it was Felix Rosenstiel who spoke next: "who is this Creator that Scriblerus spoke about?" and Dixie O'Hooligan suggested: "he must mean God, surely," and Alex Samarkand agreed: "no matter what name people give him, her. or it, I think in view of the 'pulling the plug' thing, that must be what he means, although I suspect that Scriblerus pays more attention Forex than any known God, but what can we do about it?" and Rankine said: "we can put as many people as possible into The Wee Windaes to see what happens and I've taken the liberty of speaking with The Economic Migrant - he has already hacked into the place's security system and has access to all their security cameras, which include microphones, so he can obtain the kind of paragnosis we would probably miss," and Angus Og growled: "is naewhaur privit noo? kin ye no tak a lassie oot fer a tête-à-tête wi'oot sum scumbag o a fluonomist snooper findin oot?" and Jock laughed: "if I remember rightly, Angus, your assailant that day you got bushwhacked with a stiletto might have been caught if the Deacon Brodie had been fitted out with CCTV," and Angus conceded the point – he'd come as close to death as possible and still got flashbacks, and he rubbed the scar on his head to check that it was still there; "well," said Rankine, obviously Your Lordships, and Ladyship, would be spotted by Elginbrod, and the same goes for Felix and myself, but probably Bunty, Dixie and Angus could be there, without being recognised – it's not the easiest place to cover, but if they each go with a friend, that should mean at least one will be able to observe, in addition to the CCTV coverage; but I honestly don't know who or what The Creator will be – if it's even a person. it might just be a voice that only they will hear," and Marion Boyars-Romanov suggested: "there must be a reason – if it's only a disembodied voice – that could take place anywhere, but the location must have some significance, if we could only work out what!" and The Creator, listening to the discussion, was pleased - yes, everything was going nicely to plan and perhaps the difficulties posed by the activities of MacFarlane and Doubleday would soon be festinately and satisfactorily terminated!
