Aye, Aye, Aye!

The object of this contest was to complete the word list below by replacing each blank with a letter of the alphabet. Each word in the list had to be an uncapitalized English word that can be found in a typical abridged collegiate dictionary. There was one catch: The completed list had to be in alphabetical order—that is, word 1 had to come before word 2 in the dictionary, word 2 before word 3, etc.

One possible set of answer words is given below.
