Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3321
syzygy, diametrically, tramontane, apocrypha

I was perfectly willing to believe the author of Syzygy in Kyrgyzy where he wrote that the country's tramontane fauna was diametrically opposed to that on the southern side of its mountains, or even where he claimed to have sighted a lunar eclipse from one of the summits, but his assertion that the only vowel in the Kyrgyz language is 'y' seemed apocryphal, perhaps a tale told by a mischievious Bishkek taxi driver to the gullible travel writer, if not the writer's own outright fabrication.
