I then G?

When I looked, each of the letters on the left was the 1st, then 2nd, 3rd, then 4th letter, then back to 3rd. So the next 2 letters would be the 2nd letter then the 1st again.

Did that make sense at all?

EDIT: I had the wrong letters x_x

Makes sense, but it's a red herring.

The words could be listed in any order.

These are harder than the first set ... ;)

G then Y,

they're letters you can remove to make a new word

The best I can come up with is an educated guess, because I can't find anything in black and white to back up my theory.

So I'll go with:

1 Typewriter

3 Tyrannosaurus

Correct on one, slightly off on the other. ;)

Suggests that you may not have the code exactly right.

Don't give up, look up; the clue is there.

OK I get it.

Granted, I think the answers could different depending on where you're from (I once had a long talk with an Australian about this).

1 TYPEWRITER

2 TYRANNOSAURUS

Lesson: I need to start looking for those hidden clues without being told. Once you gave that hint, it was obvious.

EDIT: corrected typo
