alright

Here is my best explanation:

'ok?' is the definition.

('alright' can be a synonym of 'ok')

'blazing about republican' is the subsidiary indication.

'blazing' becomes 'alight' ('alight' can be a synonym of 'blazing').

'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'republican' becomes 'r' (abbreviation).

'alight' enclosing 'r' is 'alright'.
