Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4816
niggard, deskfast, recalcitrant, feminacy
"Why are you young women writers such a bunch of recalcitrant niggards with your syllables," asked my thesis adviser, as she noisily attacked the second of the two foot-long hot dogs that formed her deskfast that day, wolfing about half of it down before continuing, "who persist in using short, simple words when there are so many gorgeous sesquipedalian ones available -- I mean, are you all so afraid of your own feminacy that you still have to try and sound like Ernest Hemingway in this day and age?"
