That`s a clue to TRAGICAL. This breaks down in the following way. This type of index is common in British and Canadian crypts, but is somewhat less common in American crypts; in American crossword puzzles, an index like this is generally considered a punny clue. This is almost certainly the oldest type of cryptic index: cryptic definitions appeared in the enigmas of British newspapers in the late 1920s and early 1930s, which mixed cryptic and clear terms and became completely cryptic crossword puzzles. I find that for the second blog in a row, I`ll blog at a puzzle teazel. Unlike last time, I didn`t find this on the harder side and sailed unscathed through it, although your mileage may vary, as there are some tricky clues. When I couldn`t see the answers right away, I left the long anagrams until I had a few checkers, with my last one in 24A on the ground. In total, it took about 4 and a half minutes, so well below my target time. We have good indications today. I particularly enjoyed 14A, but I also liked the simple but ordinary 22D and the “Uxbridge English Dictionary” label. It`s a big puzzle. Thank you, Teazel! How did you all progress? If the answer is displayed in the notice, but is contained in one or more words, it is obscured. For example, the answer is BAN`s BANKING for “Outlaw” and KING for “Leader.” The definition is “managing money.” In this example, words are displayed in the same order as in the response, and no specific word is required to display it.
However, the order of the parties is sometimes indicated by words such as “against,” “after,” “on,” “with” or “high” (in a downward note). Roman numerals are often used to break down words into their groups of components.

But it was a Sunday, so the clue in Mr. Agard`s puzzle is easier. In Britain, it is traditionally – dated to the cryptic crossword pioneer Edward (Bill) Powys Mathers (1892-1939) which, according to the Spanish inquisitator, was called torquemada – for the compiler to use evocative pseudonyms. “Crispa,” named after the Latin for curly-headed, which used crossword puzzles for the Guardian from 1954 to his retirement in 2004, legally changed his surname after divorce in the 1970s to “Crisp.”
