Notice I intended to conceal Charlie's weight (12)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

significance

Here is my best explanation:

'weight' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'notice i intended to conceal charlie's' is the subsidiary indication.

'notice' becomes 'sign' (**).

'intended' becomes 'fiance' (I've seen this before).

'to conceal' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'charlie' becomes 'c' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.).

'fiance' enclosing 'c' is 'ficance'.

'sign'+'i'+'ficance'='significance'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for significance that I've seen before include "Importance, meaning", "weight", "Import" and "Meaning".)
