# Bridge words 2 - word pairs linked by their front and back

I made a puzzle earlier (Bridge words), and thought I'd make another (encouraged by a request from @VictorHenry).

Find a pair of "bridge words" to fill in the gaps of the sentences below. Bridge words are words where the last $n\geq3$ letters of the first word are the same as the first $n$ letters of the second word. The words must then both be more than $n$ letters long ("hotshots-hotshots" would be a valid bridge pair ($n=4$), but "here-here" would not be).

For example:
Q: Sometimes we torture people. Sometimes we don't. We ______ our ______.
A: We intersperse our persecution.

Okay, here goes:

1. Good climbers leave the _______ ________.
2. I caught _____ of the person _______ in the pool.
3. She lives far out on the ______, ______ from society.
4. I could see that the glamorous lady was ______ _______ that caught the light.
5. We've ______ all the evidence and concluded that alcoholism is _______.
6. The dentist used an odd ______ to save information about her patient's ______.
7. I was sick in the West Indies, but in the ______ I was the ______.
8. I take a coat and dress out of the wardrobe, ______ the _______, and return them.
9. Grimm's _________ was left ______ after the queen guessed his name.
10. The king said to the regent: "I'll be back tomorrow, so you must _____ _______."

Hint:

$n$ is equal to 5 or 6.

• 4. Dressed seductively , maybe – DrunkWolf Nov 21 '15 at 20:39
• @DrunkWolf, I think I like that better than my solution to nine, but it might not match with Dr Xorile's hint. – JTL Nov 21 '15 at 20:41
• @JTL ah ok, I tend not to read hints – DrunkWolf Nov 21 '15 at 22:08
• Great job. I've made slight tweaks to some of the clues to clarify some of them. – Dr Xorile Nov 22 '15 at 1:12

I have a few to add to the ones @VictorHenry already solved. My solution for number nine feels weak.

peninsula/insulated

2.I caught _____ of the person _______ in the pool.

glimmers/immersed

9.Grimm's _________ was ______ when the queen guessed his name.

printer/interested ??? spinner/innerved ??? This seems like it should be Rumpelstiltskin-related...
