    Default D.3 Stressed Out

    Assorted
    Decadent
    Essentially
    Dinghy
    Glissando
    Mistaken
    Forthcoming
    Scholastic
    Cholesterol
    Interpolate

    There seem to be some repetitions among those words (ss, chol).

    Letter 1 from first word, letter 2 from second word and so on produces:
    AESGSEOTRT which seems a promising collection of letters for an anagram.

    Store gates - doesn't lead anywhere. This might be the wrong direction to take.

    If you take the stressed syllable from each word, you get:

    sort dec sen din san tak forth las les ter = sort descending and take fourth last letter

    Which gives:
    scholaStic
    mistAken
    interpoLate
    glissAndo
    forthcoMing
    essentiAlly
    diNghy
    decaDent
    cholestErol
    assoRted

    Salamander is the answer.
