    Missing Alphabet

    Below are thirteen 5-letter, everyday words, each of which has had two of its letters removed. In fact, the letters A-Z have been removed.
    The remaining letters in each word are in the correct order. There are no words which are spelled differently based upon location (favour/favor, etc) and there are no plurals. Can you determine the original words? You cannot use the same letter twice.

    AAE
    AVE
    UIE
    GON
    POT
    VIE
    ACT
    MET
    BEP
    UGE
    LAN
    RAE
    BON

    I'd have had <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">quite</span hide> instead of <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">quiet</span hide>. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    This one is not a real Rudity - the solutions are fully equivalent.
