Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 224
homologate, instill, dissertate, hoi polloi
Whereas Ms. Clay has demonstrated an ability to dissertate on the structure of the nuclear envelope beyond the limits of anyone else's understanding; and whereas our fine institution has instilled in her not only knowledge but also wisdom and gravitas; we, her thesis committee, do hereby homologate her and distinguish her from the hoi polloi with the title of "Doctor."
