Quandary Resolution 354
amour-propre, hebetude, disputatious, couture
With practised hebetude Desdemona reclined in an attitude of lassitude upon the pillow, wearying of Othello's correction: his disputatious quibblings about her morals and her sartorial taste - viz today her stockings, which being bas sans couture he pronounced unseemly - thereby in a disingenuously antanaclastic pun at one stroke blackening her reputation and undermining her amour-propre.
