Just this week two quotations turned up with the word aura. High, higher, highest, and highly are surprisingly common in the cryptograms. Here is my collection:
ouzo (a personal favourite)

What a list.

Whoa, Lacon! That list is a keeper! Thank you for sharing it here.
"Hath" -- I bet this one has caused me to give up more times than I realize. I need to keep it in mind for quotes from the thee/thou authors.
And yes, ouzo is a great one. I will post back here if I ever find a quote with it!

Three more that I did not find on Lacon's list: tact, tart, test.

Aerie: Nice list but noon does not qualify. The two middle letters must differ.

Oddcouple, Thanks for noticing that; I will edit the list. ;)

What a list.
Took me a month, but I just noticed that Lurker added a word to the list!

I've never seen the second two, but seas is there often enough.
