Grid 1313 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble Some who provide (or have provided) SETTINGS FOR WORDS do so in more ways than one. In eight clues, a word is clued which, placed in its setting (which is what is entered in the grid), will make up one such provider. Some of these will be less familiar than others, but all can be found in an appropriately thematic dictionary, which would also supply a normally clued answer not in Chambers (1993); all but one are in Collins; alternative spellings to 12dn are given in some reference books. Unchecked letters in the eight settings spell: DRINK NUMB CRAFT.
