Magma et al. (Posted on 2010-06-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
"Onion" and "salsa" possess a similar structure: both words consist of two identical 2-letter syllables and a distinct letter between them.
Apparently, there are more English words of similar form (12312).
Find as many as you can.

(In reply to re: Solution by ed bottemiller)

One should not be finicky about the contadictions between the  12312 format          and the strictness of syllables count.<br><br>

  IMHO -  the format prevails, so "sense"      is in , but go-go ,so-so and similar are definitely out.

I saw full solutions in other posts, and the advantage of  a computerized search in a extensive data base is obvious.
