• Heh, this couldve been a very decent What Is A Word? style puzzle – greenturtle3141 Jun 4 '19 at 1:21
• Maybe if both columns had the same words. It is deja vu after all. – Jay Jun 4 '19 at 2:26

The property these words have is that

you can double them and anagram to form a new word: TARTAR, BILABIAL, PALPAL, TATTLETALE, TEAMMATE, NOON, REAPPEAR, APPEASES, REDDER, MURMUR, SENESCENCE, HOTSHOTS, SIGNINGS, INTESTINES.

• I started Ghost Trick after looking at your profile, and now it's like I am playing a game controlling a real person. Sheesh... – George Menoutis Jun 4 '19 at 16:14
• Can you share the journey on how you found the property? It seems hard. – justhalf Jun 4 '19 at 20:55
• @justhalf The puzzle itself is a pretty big clue. Also, many of these are reasonably well known; it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Deusovi recognized the answer just from the last two on the list. Add SCENE and it's nearly a sure thing. – Rubio Jun 5 '19 at 0:07
• Yeah, the puzzle presentation itself was the main hint. Once I saw the last word, I immediately saw the anagram (since it's really not much of a change from just doubling it), and at that point the other words were just verification. – Deusovi Jun 5 '19 at 3:39
