Any early warnings? (Posted on 2010-04-02) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Panjandrum, lifeboat, smart, capricious, dismayed, subjunctive, julep, daughter, antiseptic, nocturnal, decisive. There is something uniting these words into a certain set. What is it?

The words contain 11 abbreviations of the months- there is an error in NOVEMBER ( NOCTURNAL instead of NOVICE or similar)

I was reprimanded by E.B.and appologized as follows:
anYEAR-ly warnings?
I really do not deserve a "NOVel" prize for innovating a new abbreviation for NOVember.
As a multitasking NOVice I tried simultaneously to:
- reNOVate my house,
-read a NOVel,
-schedule my trip from NOVaScotia to NOVosibirsk
...and to print the snapshots of SuperNOVa.
Needless to say I failed in one out of the twelve words I've tried to compose....
Mea Culpa.
I should never try to invent NOVus Ordo Seclorum.
