If you add a letter to the beginning of each of the 8 words below, you can create another word. That word may not be spelled correctly, but it will sound like a valid word.

knee
sir
wash
send
corn
trap
sun
girly

If you do this correctly, the letters you add, when read downward, will spell out a word that represents what you are looking for when listening to directions.


Answer

G + knee = genie
U + sir = user
I + wash = eyewash
D + send = descend
A + corn = acorn
N + trap = entrap
C + sun = season
E + girly = eagerly

So, the 8-letter word you are listening for is GUIDANCE.
