    Fragments

    Below, a word fragment is given, and you must think of an English word that contains the fragment -- that is, you must form a word by adding letters to the beginning and/or the end of the fragment. You may not add letters to the middle of the fragment, nor may you rearrange the letters given.

    To solve the puzzles you only need to find one word for each fragment.

    Example:
    nuu = continuum


    1. osoe
    2. iloli
    3. atula
    4. alibr
    5. wkw
    6. lywo
    7. athem
    8. oela
    9. rogl
    10. choan
    11. ylop
    12. rehen
    Regards,
    Rudi
