Here are some words that share a link to a single word, used in different ways...
- Street (where runners go)
- Respect (a gesture)
- Ribbon (a flourish)
- Reflex (a weapon)
- Play (might be awe-inspiring or just awful)
- Front (a place with a view)
What's the word that links to all these?
You smart people won't need any more hints* but I can add words to the list, if you really need it.
* (OK, maybe two then)
And with thanks to @xnor and @randal'thor for discussion on format.
