wedgewords

A wedgeword is a word that can be inserted between two given words so that when split between those given words two longer words are formed, as in the following example: OUT(.......)LION. The wedgeword CRYSTAL when inserted between OUT and LION gives OUT(CRY.STAL)LION. CRYSTAL is therefore the solution. If more than one wedgeword is possible, only the longest counts as the correct solution. The number of dots does not indicate the length of the wedgeword. British English spellings apply. Now try these:

1: UNDER(.......)LIED
2: UNDER(.......)OUR
3: RAM(.......)HEM
4: FORM(.......)LED
5: HE(.......)HE
6: GRAM(.......)LING
7: INTER(.......)END
8: PEA(.......)OR
9: CAR(.......)ATE
10: CARE(.......)PET
