Can you find the missing words (number of question marks equal number of letters)

puzzling - puzzled - perplexed - ??????? - ???????? - ??????? - ????????? - ?????????? - ?????????? - ???????

using these examples?

cynicism - inclination - urge - earnestly - sincere - pretense

froth - agitation - briskly - impatient - provoked - stimulate

Hint 1:

if you dont have google, this is impossible

Ask Google to define each word, and click the first linked word that shows up in the definition. For example, define inclination has definition: "1. a person's natural tendency or urge to act or feel in a particular way; a disposition or propensity." So, inclination goes to urge.

The missing words are hence:

puzzling - puzzled - perplexed - baffled - restrain - oneself - emphasize - prominence - projecting - outward

The sequence stops here, because

outward has no linked words in its definitions.

    $\begingroup$ I see it depends on the Google Language settings. For example, my default language is English + Native. So, it doesnt work for me. It gives a different definition. If I set it to only English, it works. $\endgroup$
