Proclaim girl in acute trouble (10)


I believe the answer is:


'proclaim' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'girl in acute trouble' is the wordplay.
'girl' becomes 'Ann' (woman's name).
'trouble' indicates an anagram.
'inacute' with letters rearranged gives 'unciate'.

(Other definitions for annunciate that I've seen before include "Proclaim" , "Announce (arch.)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
