A Fiendishly Difficult Word Game
Every schoolchild knows that kangaroos carry their babies in their pouches. Fewer people know about kangaroo words, which carry their own baby words with the same meanings.
For example, the kangaroo 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:
- Appropriate (adjective).
- Salvage (verb).
- Separate (verb).
- Deliberate (verb).
Can you find two synonyms inside these kangaroo words?
