Aim at stage on which a tall pirate stands? (3,3)
I believe the answer is:
'a tall pirate stands?' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.
'aim at stage on' is the wordplay.
'aim at' becomes 'peg' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'stage' becomes 'leg' (a leg is a stage of a competition).
'on' says to put letters next to each other.
'which' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for peg leg that I've seen before include "that supported Ahab" , "Silver piece's replacement" , "Long John Silver, for instance" , "Person with a wooden limb" , "(Person with) artificial limb" .)
