Quite easy this week I thought but can anyone explain this?
19a Shock a missionary in conversation 5.
I have a-p-l I can only think of ampul or appal so presume it is the latter as it can mean shock. But can anyone explain how you get appal from a missionary in conversation? Thanks and merry Christmas everyone. Incidentally I can now usually do the Observer one each week but hopless if I try the Times or Guardian. Which would any of you experts recommend at this stage? Thanks

Hi!

APPAL I'd agree with as it sounds (in conversation) like A + Paul (St Paul being a missionary).

This is a bit of a groaner - the converstion bit is the 'sounds like' and the missionary is St Paul as in a-Paul (!)
