A superfluous word needs to be removed from the wordplay of 12 clues before solving. The first letters of these words in clue order provide an instruction for altering answers to eight other clues before they are entered in the grid. In these clues, definitions apply to the word before alteration and, mostly, the entries are not words. Word length indicators refer to the grid entry. One solution is in Macquarie but not Chambers.
