    Question A Little Word Guess

    Unscramble those words!
    The words below have had their letters scrambled, and must rearrange the letters so they make sense.
    One example: LROFEW --> FLOWER
    To help you a little I will add next to each word, in brackets, the category of the word. If I write TCA (animal), it means TCA is (when unscrambled) an animal. Here it would be CAT.
    All words are in huge capital letters, so you shouldn't have any trouble reading.
    If there is more than one possible answer, I count them all as correct (example: GDO can be either DOG or GOD).
    And yes, the longer the word, the harder it gets


    1. SIHOLHTEGU (building) ---------->?
    2. LTEACRIPRLA (animal) ---------->?
    3. MPTLICDAOCE (adjective) ---------->?
    4. YIOGRMROETNT (math branch) ---------->?
    5. OLSHNCAYSPTAY (profession, job) ---------->?
    6. HEATMIICTAMAN (profession, job) ---------->?
    7. YENTROLCREEHEALHOAPCGP (no hints for this one) ---------->?

    Hmm... A programming language named SAP? I can think of a few protocols, but you've got me beat on that one. Did you mean ASP or SOAP?

    I don't remember what mine was... Some scientific term for some lung disease or something. What was yours?
