Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4797
niggler, sequela, fustigate, logomachy

Ours was a longstanding logomachy concerning the expansive use of words; she believed every word must have a precise meaning, while I believed taking liberties with word use was the foundation of semantic change and, using every opportunity to advance my argument, softly, softly, I told her that I was sure her being a feral brute, raper, pillager and fustigator of small children in her prior life was the sequela of her current depraved, niggling personality: she was wonderfully apoplectic.
