Here is my best explanation:

'comprehensive' is the definition.
('general' can be similar in meaning to 'comprehensive')

'demolish large new english' is the wordplay.
'demolish' is an anagram indicator.
'new' becomes 'n'.
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'large'+'n'+'e'='largene'
'largene' is an anagram of 'GENERAL'.
