  • The crossword is back!!

    I know how much you all like a good crossword clue,

    So to help out some fuzzybrained scientists here are some clues:

    5dn Angler goes round a course R?A?

    11ac Engineers cloud of small flying drops to change colour of paint ?E?P?A

    12ac In part one performing leaves to violate the law ?N?R???

    7&17ac Tear fabric with incomplete local charge L????A?E (I think this is meant to be 1 word not 2).

      The only word I can think of for the angler one is REAL - don't know what that has to do with the clue though!

      The last one could be LACERATE but not too sure.

      Sorry not much use I know.

      Cheers.

          5d - ROAD.

          Angler is a ROD, and it goes round A to form a course = ROAD

            12ac In part one performing leaves to violate the law ?N?R???

            INFRACT

            Part one performing = ACT

            Can't explain the rest, but violate the law is to INFRACT which sounds reasonable to me.

                I'd agree with that:

                fabric = Lace
                with incomplete local charge = rate(s)
                Tear = lacerate (close enough for a crossword I think)

                    Coincide

                    18dn Caustic speech about sulphuric acid ??U?I?L
                    I think your third letter may be incorrect as I think the answer to this one is
                    Vitriol

                    Still thinking about the others.

                        If the 3rd letter (U) is incorrect in 18dn then I can't think what could replace "Strange tool hit ear-bone" ?T????? I know the stirrup (my answer) is a bone in the ear and it hits the anvil or the hammer or some other oddly named tiny bone.....

                            You're right about the stirrup and I can't think of anything else for that, so I must be wrong about 18dn - sorry :-(

                            Can't think of anything else at all - so I'll shut up and go and do something useful.

                              The acid one is VITRIOL, I'm pretty sure - there aren't many words that fit the letter pattern with a U in there.
