French girl returns if encored (4)
I believe the answer is:
'encored' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.
'french girl returns if' is the wordplay.
'french girl' becomes 'fi' (nickname for Fiona. I am not sure about the 'french' bit.).
'returns' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.
'if' back-to-front is 'fi'.
Can you help me to learn more?
