Now that Forrie Agincourt has turned 13, he's at loggerheads with his parents on a weekly basis, but his relationship with Auntie Jenn is everything a mentally active new teen could want. Over Labour Day weekend, the two of them scoured the dictionary for another list of apparent antonyms with which he could confound his progenitors. Each pair of definitions below involves two words that are spelled the same ... except that the first start with "pro" and the second starts with "con". Although Forrie wasn't as polite when he challenged his parents with this second list, they still gave it a try. Prospera got 4 words, and Connor got 3. How many can you get?

1. a stately parade -- a grant
2. plentiful -- befuddle
3. faculty member -- clerical role
4. an incitement -- a gathering
5. earliest form -- 1,000 escudos
6. formal catalogue -- summary
7. turn a hand palm down -- analogous


#5 "pro" is usually a prefix, rather than a separate word
#6 "con" is an uncommon word
#7 "pro" is an uncommon word
