I didn't think so either, but I wasn't a hundred percent sure. Mostly, I'm just happy that the wordplay was, in the end, enjoyed.

I think it would make a good game on the Games thread. Or on the Lists thread. Not that I have thought of any but I shall put my mind to it at some point.

Given the way that we're by and large intentionally pedantic about the inconspicuous difference between two words that a large portion of the general population don't know exist, I think we should be appropriately pedantic. Furthermore, there is no way that the meaning of 'moon starer'and "astronomer" are identical.

Through doing the crossword today, I have discovered an apatagram.

"genealogist" = "got lineages"

another similar one I recall now;

"ephemeral" = "ample here"
