Clues are presented in alphabetical order of clue, and only the first half of the alphabet is used for the initial letters of clues. Each initial letter refers to a different column of the grid, which is the column in which the answer to the clue begins, but whether Across or Down is for the solver to determine (wordplay should not be taken as indicating one or other direction). The grid has 90º symmetry. One entry is unclued, and has several possible answers – solvers must observe the allocation of initial letters to columns to determine the correct one.
