Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1544
literatim, trimester, sirenian, blithe
An accomplished plagiarist, punctiliously reproducing literatim every stylistic tic of an obscure paper on 'Sirenians in Greek Mythology : the Lure of the Mermaid', Helen found herself sent down for a trimester, during which enforced sabbatical she blithely devoted herself to a closely paraphrased rewrite of her purloined text, thereby fully rehabilitating herself in the eyes of her professor as a student of rare creative promise.
