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:


 Over a coffee and cake, quite late,

Jasmine assessed her friend's fate, to date,

"You have two lovely little boys,"

"But," said Rilla, "they'll make lots of noise!"

"And Rary loves you, I can see that's so,"

"He loves his bike—did you see him go?"

"I have a book by Ann Onymous,"

"No!" said Rilla, "that's surely anomalous,"

But Jasmine dismissed that idea:

"The citerior part makes it clear,

You can tell that she writes from the heart,

Two lovers, one Juliet, the other, Bart,

Are sprunting, she shows with each parse,"

But Rilla just hooted: "my arse!"
