MYTHOLOGY (OGY sounds like an ending, probably ...LOGY)
DECKCHAIR (KCH must be in the middle, so DEC or DUC must start)
ACQUITTAL (ACQ must be followed by U)
LIGHTNING (LIG looks like a beginning)
IMPORTANT (ANT looks like an ending, though it could also be a beginning)
DIFFERENT (ENT is like ANT)
CONDUCTOR (TOR seems an ending)
RECTANGLE
POLICEMAN
NEWSAGENT

The last three words aer easy to get, for there are few possibilities, but the word divisions in the last two words are particularly hard.
