Quandary Resolution 915
lincolnesque, hypernatremic, will-o'-the-wisp, salient
'The most salient thing about these albatross fritters,' declared the mariner (a glittering-eyed old salt), taking another mouthful while conveying a lincolnesque air of measured authority, 'is that after all the effort they're so damnably saline, and - believe you me - bringing this one down with a cross-bow was like trying to catch a will-o'-the-wisp; so if you don't mind I'll have another beer to slake my hypernatraemia, for my tongue's withered at the root.'
