This glossary has been put together with the ‘regular’ solver in mind rather than for the expert, and while it’s specifically for cryptic crossworders it will also be of help in solving the ‘quicks’. It is called a glossary because it is a mixture of thesaurus, dictionary and fact book. Australian and New Zealand solvers who have had to rely solely on works from English and American publishers are specially catered for, and inexpensively so in this electronic version. Users will enjoy two search systems - one alphabetical and the other a specific word or phrase search. The entries have come from the author’s experience in running cryptic Crossword courses, from taking note of words from everyday speech, from the media generally and from an 87+ year life in using the Australian language in a range of professions – as a teacher, a naval officer and an international publisher. It’s a solo work prepared over 10 years, firstly for personal use and now for the general benefit of others. At the very least it will add to the value of any other references you use and to your enjoyment of this fascinating art.
