    The word "Base" or "cause" for something, is common for all these.

    like FOND - is the base of many classic pan sauces
    CLAIM - base for demanding something
    GALL - base of annoyance etc

    :confused:

    regards,
    mridula

    All can be added at the end with "ant" to make a proper word

    like FONDANT, BOUYANT, ADAMANT etc
