Words like Masculine and Alone are Kangaroo Worlds, which means those words that contain letters of another synonymous word.

Masculine here contains the word Male and Alone contains its synonym Lone.

Ah cool! I see Alone has the word lone in it meaning it's a Kangaroo word right? However I done see the word male in masculine? What am I missing?

Kangaroo word means synonym word, For example the kangaroo word for respite is rest and the kangaroo word for splotch is spot.
