Motion

If you pronounce the words in Group A so that the first
letter of each word is an individual syllable, you get
new words: ceiling, derive, effort, estate. Only with
motion from Group B can the same thing be done:
emotion.

=============================
.
Becky prepared a pasta dish for a dinner party she was
giving. In her haste, however, she forgot to refrigerate
the spaghetti sauce, and it sat on the counter all day.
She was worried about spoilage, but it was too late to
cook up another batch.
.
She called the local Poison Control Center and voiced her
concern. They advised Becky to boil the sauce again.
.
That night, the phone rang during dinner, and one of the
guests volunteered to answer it. Becky's face dropped as
the guest called  out, "It's the Poison Control Center.
They want to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out."
