Period regularly covering individual's recollections, primarily in this? (5)
I believe the answer is:
'period' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both related to communication as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe you can see an association between them that I can't see?
'regularly covering individual's recollections primarily in this?' is the wordplay.
'regularly' becomes 'day' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'covering' indicates putting letters inside.
'individual' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral for one).
'primarily' indicates taking the first letters.
'in this?' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
The initial letter of 'recollections' is 'r'.
'day' going around 'i' is 'diay'.
'diay' placed around 'r' is 'DIARY'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for diary that I've seen before include "personal account" , "Appointment book" , "Record of events" , "Pepys' daily record" , "Daily record of personal activity" .)
