Preamble Single-word definitions are given to nine words to be entered clockwise around the perimeter of the grid, their order and lengths to be deduced. Eleven of the numbered clues lead to the only other enties yielding thematic parts. The numbering for ten of these clues has become jumbled. Solvers must highlight all the thematic parts in the grid. Chambers Dictionary (2003) is the primary reference.

The nine perimeter words, the answers with incorrect clue numbers, and the eleventh thematic clued answer at 17D, provide the grid with a complete set of adjacent pairs of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, which are to be highlighted.
