Tough One

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

Below you will find ten words and ten groups of consonants. Each word has a synonym that can be made from one group of consonants, although not necessarily in the order provided. You will have to add vowels as needed.

For example, the first word - body - is matched to the consonant group CPRS, from which you can create the synonym CoRPSe.

Once you have made all the matches and correctly identified all the synonyms, you will have a new set of ten words that, when placed in the correct order, form the first part of a literary series.

Can you determine all the synonyms and then name the next word in the series?

1) body
2) defense
3) detective
4) murder
5) opinion
6) proof
7) pure
8) runaway
9) shirker
10) thief

a) BDDT
b) BGLRR
c) BL
d) CDHM
e) CDNV
f) CNNNT
g) CPRS
h) DGJMNT
i) FGTV
j) GHMS


If you need help, the hint will tell you which consonant group matches which word.
