An aSCending SCale (Posted on 2014-11-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5
In the 8-letter word list below you see, how the couple SC propagates from the beginning of a 9--letter word to its end.

SCeptical
aSCending
faSCinate
conSCious
teleSCope
obeliSCal
reminiSCe
videodiSC

Provide similar lists, if possible, for valid n-letter words n between 3 and 13 letters. Rem1: All goes, e.g. ASCI, Nietzsche, Descartes etc as long as appearing in a reputable dictionary.
Rem2: Explaining esoteric entries is welcome.
