Messing with letters… Oofing?…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s random dictionary words are: proin, prolegomena, proglottis, progne, pronotum, and bummalo. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. Extra marks will be awarded to any student bringing fruit. A word of warning: Professor Mouldie does not get on with plums or damsons.

A simple, but annoying puzzle involving the letter ‘R’.

I call this the ‘Blocksmith Puzzle’ because its origin was in a keyboard error I once noticed I’d made typing the word ‘locksmith’.
It’s a nice word, blocksmith!…

Some of the letter Rs have been deliberately loosened from this page, please tip all these words into a small bag, give it a good shake, and then tip them out to see if order can spontaneously arise from chaos.
