quinquarticular

5 quart gallons...the "Baker's Dozen" of milk.

The new dairy was offering quinquarticular gallons of milk to attract market share.

quinquarticular - adj. Describes a mother of quintuplets who "secretly" loves her fourth child best.

Roberta's quinquarticularity was impossible for her to mask, and unfortunately it often led to brutal rivalries amongst the siblings that would later escalate to all-out war during holiday get-togethers.

quinquarticular - a piece originally written in 5/4 time that has been "re-interpreted" in 4/4 time.

The new quinquarticular version of the Mission Impossible theme set a fitting tone given overall quality of the film's attempt to capture the spirit of the original.

quinquarticular: Fictitious word invented solely for practicing the "qu" sound at articulation school


Test Sample number 3: I would like to congratulate you on your magnificent and quinquarticular appendicitis that beneficially pacified any sophisticated cafeteria conversation in February.

Quin Quarticular -- The eponymous hero of the Quin Quarticular series of books for Asperger's Syndrome children. Quin's adventures include learning that when other people talk to him, they expect him to respond on the topic about which they are talking, to look up occasionally and meet their eyes, to realize that other peoples' facial expressions and body positions convey information, and so forth.

According to TIME Magazine, there are many many rave reviews from parents of AS children who say Quin Quarticular has changed their childrens' lives.

quinquarticular, adj.
especially half-arsed, regarding nothing in particular

Boyd's mom was incredibly proud of his acquired eloquence and his quinquarticular opinions.

quinquarticular - an aerial combat maneuver where an aircraft performs a mid-air somersault of sorts. It is performed by following the standard procedure for a Cobra, but instead of snapping back to level flight it continues to pull the nose further back, at one point flying tail-first. The manoeuvre allows for very quick turns which can make an attack fail by the opponent overshooting, or put the pilot in a position to execute an attack. It is an example of air combat poststall manoeuvring.

We were both out of missles, so it had come down to the traditional stuff. I let him get behind me, went quinquarticular, he overshot, and as he went past I put a line of 20mm cannon holes along his fuselage that soon erupted in flames. He bailed out and his crate exploded a couple seconds later.

quinquarticular the mindset one gets from viewing a Warhol or Kubrick's 2001, and the like.

The Poe's, dazed, sat frozen by quinquarticular force of evening.

quinquarticular - to wander the ruins of a dead civilization instead of performing one's judging duties.

Amid the spectacle of the massive vine-covered remnants of walls, and the crumbled piles of scree nearly blocking what had once been streets, Fox was lost in wonder.

Well hello, all. I just stopped in for nostalgic reasons really, to reminisce with old friends about last month when we first got this splendid word. Wasn't that great? I miss Hfox. His witty presence here always enlivens the place, and we're all the better for it, don't you agree?

quinquarticular - describes an action that occurs on a cycle of approximately four or five months, depending upon the whim of the perpetrator.

Blanche's interest in actually beginning a serious exercise program was quinquarticular at best, and ranked right up there on her list with thinking about replacing the furnace filter.

Quinquarticular: Annual film festival held in Chihuahua Mexico, in which the state commemorates the city's most famous inhabitant, Antonio Rudolfo Oaxaca Quinn, by an all-night projection of his movies on a huge screen. Locals can be seen eating hot chihuahuas, a finger food best enjoyed with chili and hot relish, and accompanied with a local cerveza.
