Half the across and half the down clues lead in their definitions to Spoonerisms of the correct answers to be entered. Subsidiary indications in these clues lead to the correct answers themselves. In the remaining clues (except 25) the definitions have been distorted by one Spoonerism per clue. Subsidiary indications in these clues likewise lead to the correct answers. Competitors should submit with their solutions a clue of the latter type to replace the asterisked definition at 25. NB Spoonerisms may be either consonantal (e.g. WHITEBAIT/BITE WAIT or WEIGHT) or vocalic (e.g. BUNTING/BIN TONGUE), and may be accompanied by changes of punctuation. Bracketed numbers after clues indicate the length of grid entries throughout.
