Hi, having trouble with 2 endings:
11a: 'In Scotland will I shut up after starting to explain? I may write like Lyly' (8)
EUPHUIST or EUPHUISE ? (the ambiguous 'after' is the puzzle, and the final 'T' is part of the anagram ??
1d: I'm dubbed Sly Prince curiously (9):
LIPSYNCED or LIPSYNCER ??
(can't find LIPSYNCER in Chambers but it fits the anagram).
Thanks for any help.

Hi Beth,

LIPSYNCER is in Chambers - it is towards the end of the "lip" entry.

Regards,

Ken.

Many thanks Jerry for your confirmation.
It's just that I know Paul McK. can be really devious and tricksy with those 'isolated' letters!
Best regards, Beth
