Each set of letters consists of two synonyms. In each case, the last letter of the first word and the first letter of the second word, which are the same, have been deleted and the space has been removed.

When the missing letters are reinstated, the following words appear.

ARID DRY
BIG GIANT
BOY YOUTH
CHUM MATE
COIL LOOP
CRY YELL
DIGIT TOE
GIRL LASS
HOOF FOOT
ILK KIND
