In last week's news, there was some info about the four stomachs
of a cow. ABOMASUM is the fourth stomach of a ruminant. What was not
included last week was the alternate form of this word, which is
ABOMASUS; its only plural is the Latin plural of ABOMASI. Thanks
to Chris K. for pointing out the omission.

While playing BOGGLE, words RAMEN and RAMEN have shown up, and
so I wondered what other 5-letter R words can have different fourth
letters. This is the whole list, many of which will not surprise you:
