Re(3): Listener 4411 Extra English by Raffles

Thank you for all kind comments both here and in the letters from JEG.
Re ELIEL, I have to admit that neither I nor my two test-solvers noticed this, and nor, I think, did the editors. However, I think ALM would not have accepted as an entry even as a proper noun. Personally I tend to assume only proper nouns in Collins would usually be accepted. (This would also preclude Eliel, although I suppose as a thematic word this could have been an exception.)
In fact, my test-solvers and I had not even noticed the option of AZRAIL, which had to be precluded in the preamble.
Apologies for any unclarity/ambiguity.
