The solution word or phrase and spoonerism are included, and the type of reference is almost always indicated by reference to Spooner himself – some regions/publications insisting on the inclusion of his religious title „Rev.“ or „Reverend.“ Unlike all other types of clues, it is almost impossible to hide them. But that doesn`t necessarily make them easy. The clues given to the Solver are based on different forms of wordplay. Almost every clue has two non-straddled parts: one that provides an unchanged but often indirect definition of the word or phrase, and a second part that contains the game that gives words. In some cases, the two definitions are the same, as is often the case in „bed.“ – Clues. Most cryptic crossword puzzles indicate the number of letters in the response, or in the case of sentences, a series of numbers to designate the letters in each word: „cryptic crossword“ would be included in „7.9““ after the indication. Advanced puzzles can bring down this part of the index. This is where the answer is made by associating individually slammed words to make a bigger word (i.e. the answer). A container message puts one set of letters in another. So: cryptic styles in all newspapers are supposed to be similar, but there are technical differences that make the work of setters considered either Ximenean or libertarian (and often a combination of the two). There are many ways for builders to show part of a clue. In this note: An example of a clue that logically cannot be taken correctly: here the composer wants to call the answer „derby,“ with „a“ definition, „could“ be the anagram indicator and „be dry“ the anagram lining.
„Derby“ is an anagram of „be dry.“ But „be“ does double duty, which means that any attempt to enigmatically read the word „[definition] [anagram indicator] [fodder]“ fails: if „be“ is part of the anagram indicator, then the lining is too short, but if it is part of the forage, there is no anagram; to give a correct indication, it should be „a maybe dry (5)“ which is not grammatical. A variant could read hat is dry (5), but this also fails because the word „to,“ which is necessary to render the sentence grammatical, follows the indicator („reveals itself“), although it is not specified in the anagram. the answer would be blind, because blind can mean both „don`t see“ and „window cover.“ Note that, since these definitions come from the same basic word, an American magazine may not allow this mention. U.S. dual definitions generally require that the two parties come from different roots, as in this note: research on the cryptic crossword solution was relatively rare. Several discrete areas have been studied: cognitive or linguistic challenges arising from cryptic indications. the mechanisms by which the „Aha!“ -Moment is triggered by the resolution of encrypted crosswords;  the use of cryptic crossword puzzles to maintain cognitive flexibility („use-it-or-lose-it“) in aging populations; and expert studies on high performance drivers and the ability to solve cryptography.    gives THAMES a flow from London.
Here, surface reading suggests a flower that masks the fact that the name of a river is needed. Note the question mark: This is often (but not always) used by compilers to display what kind of warning is a place where you have to interpret words in a different way.
