The letters that the indicator “doctor” tells us to unscramble are “had a nice”, and the literal definition of the solution is “big estate in Latin America”. Irish Times Simplex Crossword Author: The settler for Irish Times simplex crosswords over the past twenty years has been Mary O’Brien. The Big Book of Simplex Crosswords combines the first two bestselling titles in the Simplex series in a new edition. Doctor had a nice big estate in Latin America” (8) is a recent Crosaire anagram clue, with the anagram indicator here being “Doctor” as a verb, meaning to change or amend something.The Irish Times simplex answers today were mainly interesting definitions covering a variety of topics including Star treks and Procul Harum.

Both parts of the clue corroborate each other, helping us to be doubly sure that we have accurately translated the clue. Practice makes perfect: Like learning a new language, practice is the only way to develop fluency in this game. Though there is no exhaustive list (despite the pleas of my followers), some recent anagram indicators that I have encountered include “messy”, “scrambled”, “confused”, “ran amok”, “redesigned” and “regrettably”, all of which are instructing us to rearrange or reorganise a word or phrase into its translated, solved format. Brainstorm, brainstorm, brainstorm: Go through each clue with a fine-tooth comb and jot down every acronym, abbreviation, synonym or associated word you can connect to every word or phrase in the clue, no matter how outlandish or tenuous the link.

Negative response” is simply “No”, while “the Spanish” is asking us to translate the word “the” into Spanish, leaving us with “El”. Cryptic puzzles have their own unique grammatical structure and spelling rules, which cannot be learned out of context. Some examples include double definition clues, which contain no wordplay, but rather two contrasting yet corroborating definitions, for example: “Even so, each and every one is indistinguishable” (3,3,4). Languages other than English, including Irish, feature heavily in the Crosaire, and always add an extra challenge for the solver. This is the encrypted part of the clue, that requires us to have some knowledge of common codes and indicators to translate the clue into layman’s terms.

The first prize will be two nights, bed and breakfast with dinner on one evening for two people sharing in Glenlo Abbey, Co Galway.
