Cryptic Crossword Indicators and Abbreviations

I have been adding to this list as I find extra abbreviations that aren't in the list. Please email me via the address at the foot of this page if you have suggestions for additions. You can see the complete history of changes to this list from the original version to the current one on github.
# This list is a reformatted and slightly updated version of one
# compiled by Ross Beresford and posted to rec.puzzles.crosswords in
# 1992.  That post can be found here:
# 
#   http://groups.google.com/group/rec.puzzles.crosswords/msg/09ddc2e84abbe18a
#
# I'm maintaining this list in a git repository that can be found on
# github:
# 
#   https://github.com/mhl/cryptic-crossword-indicators-and-abbreviations/
# 
# Please let me know if you think something should be added to this list.
# 
# Those words marked with * are generally only found in advanced cryptic
# crosswords and those marked with + are regarded as unsound by some.
