Some Thoughts First thoughts | Comment 1 of 8
a) From the title, I assume that this is an alphametic, and that each of these letters represents a number.
b) In set 2, the first 4 words are 8 letters long, and the last two are 9 long.  I guess that these are in increasing order of numeric value.
That would make d < i < k < m, and d < r, numerically.  
c) Also,  d < i < k < m, and d < r alphabetically.  I wonder if that is significant.
d) the letters in the two sets, alphabetically, are:
    a  d  e  i  g  k  l  m  n  o  r  s  t  u  y  z
    too many for a proper alphametic
e) the letters in the set 2, alphabetically, are:
    a  d  e  i  g  k  l  m  n  o  r  s  t  u  y
    still too many for a proper alphametic

I'm going to await developments
