Each line describes with synonyms/short definitions, two different words and some kind of direction that one of the words should be subtracted from the other. The answer then remains with each of the ten fitting a general theme hinted at in the title. Like this one.
Also: the answer is present in its entirety within the main word and only separates the subtracted word in two i.e. there is no need to rearrange letters.
