Query - How's your vocabulary?

Ok. No Cheating!

In reading an opinion by my judge today on an issue I've never had to consider before, I have had to look up a long list of words... This is going to be a frequent occurrence for me during this job, because, as is well known, my judge has (or at least makes use of) the broadest vocabulary of any sitting federal judge.

If you know the definition of any of these words, comment with your definition.  No googling people.  I'll post results on Saturday.

Here's the list of words I looked up for this ONE CASE...

1) ersatz
2) wended
3) protean
4) chary
5) persiflage
6) ukase
7) celerity
8) hydraheaded
