Replace each line above with a new two-syllable word of similar meaning that is legal in Scrabble. The last two or more letters of each new word must form the start of the next new word, and the first and last new word must be the same word. The correct answer might follow a pattern like below, for example.

abcdefg
defghi
ghijkl
klmn
mnop
nopqrstuv
tuvwxyz
yzab
abcdefg
