My grandma phoned me recently for some help with a crossword. The clue was 'excitement', we had a few letters but couldn't think of anything.
Anyway the answers came out and she rang me back a little put out that the answer was 'fermentation'.
She has looked up in several dictionaries and doesn't feel that the clue is suitable for the answer. I can maybe see it from a chemical sort of viewpoint with fermentation involving bubbling, frothing etc. So is this a suitable clue? Is there a definition of fermentation that could mean excitement? Or the other way round?
