Religious words correct we hear (4)
I believe the answer is:
'religious words' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I can't understand how one could define the other.
'correct we hear' is the wordplay.
'correct' becomes 'right' (synonyms).
'we hear' shows a homophone (sound like).
'right' sounds like 'RITE'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for rite that I've seen before include "form of service" , "(Words for) ceremony" , "Ceremony - ritual" , "Uncomplaining person" , "Ceremonial act" .)
