You are given a sentence that's missing two words. The word that goes in the first blank has a T in it. Change this to a D, and phonetically, you'll get the word that goes in the second blank. For example, given "The church's wooden _______ was made from an old _______ tree," the answer would be "altar" and "alder." Hints: The answers are always two syllables long, and the T is always inside the word, not at the start or the end.
