Get your reports on for this week’s DA.
No defn clues (total 12):
Across: 4,10,12,13,23,24,28,29,30 – so 9 no defn.
Down: 6,16/2, 19 – so 3 no defn.
The only one a bit different is 23A – but should still be true and does not have a defn, juts wordplay.
Anything I missed??
Agree with your list except I had 28d as a normal clue with “aberration” doing double duty as definition and anagrind (or an &lit?). You’ve made me think now (no doubt emitting some 28 acrosses), but are 28acs a “piece”?
Tim C – thanks. Yeah I am not sure. Still think it is 12, as I see 28A as one of them but could easily be wrong.
zinzan has 28a as themed, so he has 12.
I’m inclined to call it a DA error, the alternative reading of 28A being rather strained IMO.
Until DAJ’s count I’d accidentally left one of the 12 uncounted.
Sorry, didn’t read this before I posted on Confusion. I’m happy with 11; 28A is defined for mine. And I’d answer your question with ‘No’, Tim, also distancing 28A from the theme.
Has DA responded?
