i Crossword 996 Phi

April 19th, 2014

A whole week has gone by and I’ve completely failed to work either ‘aleatoric’ or ‘stenotic’ into a conversation; I must be slipping. Of course Phi knows these words will be new to all but a few solvers, so helpfully provides us with well signposted anagrams – ‘bubbling’ and ‘flapping’ pointing the way to these two.  No, the one I struggled with was 12d, not knowing beforehand that ‘yellow material’ could be synonymous with ‘gutter press’.  And who says that crosswords aren’t educational?

COD  5d:  A long letter (5)

Original blog (as they tend to be nowadays) is complete here: http://www.fifteensquared.net/2009/04/10/independent-7015-by-phi/
