Re(5): What is an &lit? IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on January 21, 2017 at 12:01:19 PM by Robin Gilbert
Yes, it occurred to me after I had sent my post that it might be an error in the slip, since the explanation given in the paper itself did not include “&lit.”. In that case, the definition is presumably intended to be “Christmas and New Year?”?
But, in general, there being a very substantial difference between &lit. and (the very much vaguer) semi-&lit. (or partial &lit.), I think there is a case to be made for rigour in distinguishing between them in explanations of clues. Replies:
