Definition: a word, phrase, or sentence that has the ability to form another word, phrase, or sentence when its letters are reversed. A semordnilap differs from a palindrome in that the word or phrase resulting from the inversion is different from the original word or phrase. etymology: reverse spelling of palindromes. Semordnilap, according to author O.V. Michaelsen was probably first used by the recreational linguist Dmitri Borgmann, cited by Martin Gardner in the revised edition of C. C. Bombaugh’s Oddities and Curiosities of Words and Literature (1961). The basic concept (but not the term) can be found at least as far back as Lewis Carroll’s Sylvie and Bruno (1889). [wiktionary]
Rap Sheet Letters Crossword
And once again I, indie designer Christopher Adams, have joined Rex. I’m always happy to do this, and I seem to be good at writing blogs that are, at worst, NOT BAD. And this one, of the two idols I’m building, definitely falls into that camp. Maybe not the flashiest of puzzles, but it has most of what I want in a puzzle. First of all, that mesh is clean. I’m a big believer in the idea that a puzzle is only as good as the worst entries, and there was hardly anything that made me cringe when solving it. Maybe QUIK or IN LEAGUE, which looks weird on the grid without the “su”, but I’m really grasping at straws here.

Often with tightly filled grids, it can be difficult to find many good answers, as a significant portion of the effort goes into laying the floor rather than raising the ceiling. But there’s some serious work here: I CAN’T and COME TO ME, stacked NE, NOT TOO BAD and DREAM DATE SE, and MIAMI HEAT, SEMORDNILAP and FRACTAL (I’m biased here) elsewhere. More flash comes from the clues, especially [Lead Lead?] ACTOR DIRECTOR and [COOLER FILLED WITH JUICE?] ELECTRIC FAN . In both cases? reveals part of the game, but it was still fun to figure out those clues, even knowing that all these words were used in a different context than the natural surface reading.
“The woman is alive / Thou shalt not mistake her for a sign NACRE (52A: shell material) on a stone”
Anyway, as mentioned above, I had a quick enough solution; I was lucky enough to immediately recognize A MILLI (1A: Lil Wayne’s 2008 hit, the title of which is slang for big money), but even if I didn’t, the downs weren’t too tricky and AT GIMIMO / MIAMI HEAT / LAN / IRAQ (well, 3 /4 of that; see later) would have been born even without the first letter. (For that matter, TIN EAR and BANANA would also have tricks if I looked at them first; I usually hit the top row first to try to get the opening letters, then go through all the downs, especially when solving on paper.) Knocking that corner out, SEMORDNILAP was nice the jump to the middle and from there met very little resistance. Ended where ELECTRIC FAN connects NE to middle; I had MEAN for NORM and SHARE (confusing retweets and shares) and CHIRP for CHEEP and realized both were wrong and left it until the end to get confused. And returning to that area with a fresh mind after the rest helped; the mistakes were quickly corrected and it was.Once a popular resort area in the Catskills unofficially / SAT 2-6-21 / World leader playing in 1961 annexing Goa / A genre of music that includes geeksta rap

Ah, I was *hoping* Mr. Collins would get a puzzle this week – he’s a constant contributor to The New Yorker and I always enjoy his work. Since he (like yours truly) studied literature in graduate school, it often feels like I’m on his wavelength. Or maybe it’s not the reason, but it sure looks like it. It certainly seemed to be the reason today, as literary answers that are very close to my work or life have visited me repeatedly, starting with LEO Tolstoy 1A: A Name in Russian Literature, whose Anna Karenina is one of my favorite novels. , and then again with AENEAS (my boy! See you next week, buddy!) and SESTETs (see *you* in April, guys). “Twain” is a very poetic way of saying DUO , so that hint felt too literary. HERSTORIES feels like thirty years ago (18A: Chronicles from a Feminist Perspective), but it turns out I just started high school thirty years ago and spent my whole life surrounded by (and married to) feminist scholars, so no problem. My family is from IDAHO. I’ve never been called TEACH, but I TEACH. My first movie memory is STAR WARS (1977). So yes, literary and in many other ways, this puzzle was made for me. I’ve never watched THE WEST WING, though; The clue for this (41A: Government program?) was one of the harder parts of the puzzle (see below), although with a few crosswords it wasn’t that hard.
I solved this question in a fairly regular anti-clockwise direction, starting in the northwest and working my way down the west side of the grid, mostly because that’s where the short answers were easiest to get quickly. Easy slide to DIRGE CARPS TEACH and then (because I had front ends) to GREAT WORK BE PATIENT S-CLASS. At first I didn’t have the WORK part for GREAT WORK, but I swiped from T (46A: plain as day) and then SHOVEL from V (36D: big scoop) and that was SW. pretty quickly (although in 41D I briefly wrote C-NOTE instead of T-NOTE: Some government security, so there was a [government program?] that seemed to involve chewing). I had a problem with the second half of the answer, NERDCORE (50A: a genre of music that includes “geeksta rap”), but ROCK didn’t make much sense, and for once ETC . i went in, remembered HARDCORE, NORMCORE and DADCORE (I swear they’re real) – long story short, remembered the suffix “-CORE” and left again. One time the puzzle looked daunting when I rounded the corner on the south side and tried to ascend. Progress stopped at the end/bottom of those long northern continents and suddenly I was staring at what seemed like a lot of empty white space. However, at this point I didn’t go back and check those long crosses I didn’t look for at the beginning of the puzzle, and as soon as I caught my eye on one of them: bingo:
Saved by borscht! The only thing holding me back at the time was HOTWIRING, which I thought was the most difficult answer I’ve come up with today (16D: start wrong?). But that’s why they call them crosswords, because the crosses will save you from your ignorance and/or confusion. The end. Just one mistake today (besides the C-NOTE / CHEW-thing): I thought [Nice pair of boxers?] (at 17A) was PAWS (not PECS). I thought we were playing with the dogs instead of playing sports (“nice couple”!?). Speaking of PAWS, I’m going to go play with my cats now. Have a nice day.
P.S. I forgot to get mad about this puzzle having three letters “IN” (NEED, FURIOUS, BIND) … Okay, now that that’s done, say goodbye for real. Crossword puzzles have been published in newspapers and other publications since 1873. They consist of a grid of squares where the player aims to write words both horizontally and vertically.
