Six words have had their bowling terms removed. The bowling terms have been placed into Group A. The remaining letters of each word have been placed into Group B. Your task is to reconstitute the words by merging each bowling term with the proper set of letters. Other than merging the two groups together, there is no rearranging of the letters. Example: sand + pne = spanned (SpANneD).

Group A: frame, lane, pin, spare, split, strike
Group B: aghtjact, akli, cato, dilesu, hoitay, imnt


Answer

frame + imnt = firmament (FiRmAMEnt)
lane + akli = alkaline (aLkAliNE)
pin + cato = caption (caPtIoN)
spare + dilesu = displeasure (diSPleAsuRE)
split + hoitay = hospitality (hoSPitaLITy)
strike + aghtjact = straightjacket (STRaIghtjacKEt)

This is really neat, but also really hard. I know all of the words in the answer, but even after looking at the answer, I don't think I'd come up with it.

This one took a lot of thought, and then I still didn't get them all. Very good teaser. Thanks for posting.

Very creative and enjoyable! Took me a while; I had to open up Notepad to manipulate the letters, but I persevered. "aghthact" is supposed to be "aghtjact", though.
