Hint gives three letters that are used in the words, but it won't say what words they belong in.

Each pair of definitions is for two words, where the second word is the first word with a letter deleted (example: brand & band). The length of the first word in each pair is provided, along with the position of the deleted letter to obtain the second word.

1) something absurd or ridiculous (5 letters) & (delete 4th letter) money paid for transportation
2) a type of fruit (6 letters) & (delete 1st letter) a place for shooting practice
3) a dead body (6 letters) & (delete 3rd letter) a thicket of small trees or shrubs
4) to chew loudly (5 letters) & (delete 3rd letter) a great amount or quantity

Use the letters given to complete the square so that three other words can be read downwards and across. What are they?

When each of the words is rearranged, one of them can be used to prefix all the others to give three longer words.
