The best neologisms are ones that fill a useful need in the language that we didn’t realize was missing. 16-Across, the seed of this grid, is something I didn’t know we needed a word for, but it’s perfect. The helper square in the corner, which is something that, for some reason, constructors aren’t as willing to use as one adjacent to other black squares, is evidence of my eagerness to include that entry.

Plus, for you “Seinfeld” fanatics, I’ve got a clue for you in there. I feel like it’s been a while — too long, actually — since I used a “Seinfeld” reference in one of my grids. It references what I think is one of the funniest scenes in the whole series.

Thanks so much to all who’ve left a tip! It’s much appreciated, believe me.

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Tuesday!
