I was able to get it by only concentrating on the noun, figuring that if I got it, the verb would fall into place. I started at the beginning of the alphabet and tried as many letters as I could in the first spot in the word. B _ _CER (nothing) F _ _CER (fencer, maybe, but those letters have been us...
