Quandary Resolutions by wrmurp

  • #4286 submitted 11/27/2012: concinnity, uberly, vapid, rime

    The uberly vapid lecture, despite the precise concinnity of technical aids and digital examples, left little but a rime of incomprehension and dry spittle on the disappointed students. 

  • #4203 submitted 10/22/2012: predial, subduct, extemporize, acephalous

    The acephalous and unveteran predial crew, lacking leadership and experience, caused the tractor to subduct the plough mechanism, thus destroying both, and had to extemporize a hasty explanation when the farmer returned. 

  • #4177 submitted 10/12/2012: feint, jawan, nuncupative, zeugma

    I saw a real-life zeugma on the word feint, when a jawan from my regiment, during a duel with his brother, distracted his brother by threatening nuncupative amendments to his will.
