Done? No need? ...UNDO! (Posted on 2014-08-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Only 2 distinct consonants (i.e. n & d) are used in the puzzle's title.
Please provide the most comprehensive list of English words using
only these (unlimited quantity!) consonants.

Rem1: Proper names, hyphenated words, use of y as a vowel is allowed.
Rem 2: Please add a short description for not-so-common words.
