Word Deli A T T H E W O R D D E L I , a sandwich is created when one word (the "bread") is wrapped around another word (the "filling"). For example, if pose is the bread and tag is the filling, the resulting sandwich would be postage. In each menu below, you are given clues for four bread and four filling selections (listed in no particular order). You must match them up to produce the sandwiches, which are in alphabetical order of the answers; the number in parenthe- ses is the number of letters in the answer.
