These words can all have a letter added and then be rearranged to make a new 5-letter word, e.g. noun union NOUN + I = UNION.
The 7 added letters are an anagram of a 7-letter word. What is the 7-letter word, and what are the new words?

CITY + H = ITC HY

You don't have to find the value of every symbol. The rows add up to 80, and this will be the sum of every symbol in the grid. 23 + 18 + 24 + 15 = 80.
Therefore the columns must also add to 80, making the missing column 14. 24 + 14 + 17 + 25 = 80.
@ = 7, & = 4, $ = 8, # = 3, £ = 5.
