Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 902
semiquaver, superadd, lave, languor
Now listen up y'all: if you add a tied semiquaver to a dotted crotchet and then superadd another tied semiquaver you achieve the duration of a minim, which (I assure you) is exactly half a semibreve, which is just - no more, no less - half a breve (so still, as the name suggests, by rights pretty damn short), which is half as long as a long or longa, which is about as long as it gets nowadays; all of which drearily essential rudiments of music will no doubt by now find you awash in a sea of unfathomable languour - drowning that is, not laving.
