Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4951
sempiternal, vexillology, millefleur, diglossia
Just as diglossia in language is disappearing, with many major languages allowing the formerly two or more words for "you" to melt into just the informal one, such as the predominance of "tu" in Spanish, so too does vexillology seem to show the over-simplicity of flags, as regions choose one star or circle and maybe a square over the beauty of millefleur complexity; sadly the sempiternal arch towards man-made efficiency over beauty overwhelms nature's innate variety.
