[u]Bait and switch: Each clue below can be answered by changing one letter in the given, capitalized word, and then anagramming the letters. Some easy, some may be alterative spellings, hyphenated or Britspeak, and a few that may need the Stitchionary. There may even be the odd two-word answer...

Plenty to go round, so feel free to grab a couple

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
