    Marsupial Words 2

    Every schoolchild knows that marsupials carry their babies in their pouches. Fewer people know about marsupial words, which carry their own baby words with the same meanings and the letters in the proper order.

    For example, the marsupial word illuminated contains the synonym lit among its letters. Similarly exists hides the word is and deceased includes dead.

    Try to find synonyms in the following words:

    1. Curtail

    2. Evacuate

    3. Slithered

    4. Prosecute

    5. Satisfied

    6. Barren

    7. Impair

    8. Secure

    9. Equitable

    10. Clue

    11. Astound

    12. Tolerate

    13. Disputation

    14. Splotches

    15. Rotund

    16. Fabrication

    17. Revolution

    18. Fašade

    19. Market

    20. Pantaloons

    21. Supervisor

    22. Fraction

    23. Guarantee

    24. Agreement

    25. Graduate

    26. Yearning

    27. Sorcerer

    28. Averice

    29. Embarrassed

    30. Rambunctious

    31. Chocolate

    32. Moisture

    33. Falsified

    34. Vegetarian

    35. Twich

    36. Diminutive


    37. Regulate

    38. Contaminate

    39. Honorable

    40. Inheritor

    41. Charisma

    42. Unsightly

    43. Feaster

    Try to find synonyms in the following words:

    1. Curtail - Cut

    2. Evacuate - Vacate

    3. Slithered - Slid

    4. Prosecute - Sue

    5. Satisfied - Sated
    Well, maybe these are just too easy for anyone to try. Here are the first 5.
