Each of these words can be split in half, and two letters can be placed in the middle to create a new six letter word.
For example BEND can be split into BE and ND, YO can be placed in the middle to create BE + YO + ND = BEYOND.
The four added pairs of letters, in order, spell an 8-letter word - what is that word?
