Detailed part of brutalist edifice (6)
I believe the answer is:
'detailed part' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both to do with communicating as well as being past participle verbs.
Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?
'of brutalist edifice' is the wordplay.
'of' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'LISTED' is hidden within 'brutalist edifice'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for listed that I've seen before include "Historical building" , "was leaning" , "Historic building could be" , "Slid sideways like sinking ship" , "In a catalogue" .)
