Re(4): What is an &lit?

Chambers Crossword Manual uses the term 'semi & lit.' to describe a clue containing definition and wordplay as normal, but where the surface reading of the wordplay part serves to enhance the definition. The explanatory notes Azed uses in his slips make no distinction between full and semi & lits, and this is probably the source of many people's confusion. In the case of the "Time to get ebriose ..." clue, I would contend that this one has simply been mislabelled by Azed.
