The gedankexperiment in the preantenultimate chapter is reductio absurdum. "Plurisignification functions", in its understandable form, only serves as a princesse lointaine; a goal unattainable.

To celebrate this week's theme of words having plurisignification, here are two sentences:

The doxy, now enceinte, shouted a sarcastic bravo at the cant and vituperation hurled upon her by the pug nosed cleric.

One doxy after another was debated within the enceinte; and a sinister bravo negotiated the cant surrounding the castle's pug mill.

Could not resist.

"Please, dont give me that cant" said the doxy, while her pug set his teeth firmly into the bravo 's left leg, " being enceinte is not such a big deal".

If we can subsume our ability to discomfit our adversaries into a general design of malice against them, we need not begrudge them their minor victories, while we avulse from them their very decency and machinate for their downfall.

This exterted some powerful energy as I could not just read it, I had to study it. I do not begrudge you your ability to get a good phrase out of these impossible words.
