Here’s a first: no confusions! Post a comment, though, if you’ve got something bugging you.
Having just read through the crossword again to work out what were the golden clues, I’ve realised that there is in fact the following confusion:
14 across: Sleeping bouncer relinquishes nothing for candy (8)
Here, we had bouncer relinquishes nothing = do
orman, which means that candy = ce or candy = cy so that bouncer relinquishes nothing for candy = dormance or dormancy = sleeping. But how does the last step, candy = ce or candy = cy, work?
Also, is sleeping a grammatically-correct synonym for dormancy or dormance? I’m thinking not but am willing to be convinced otherwise.
