Sentimental and terribly wet, note (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

twee

Here is my best explanation:

'sentimental' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'terribly wet note' is the subsidiary indication.

'terribly' indicates an anagram.

'note' becomes 'e' (musical note).

'wet' with letters rearranged gives 'twe'.

'twe'+'e'='twee'

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for twee that I've seen before include "Excessively sweet", "Overly cute", "Over-pretty, sentimental", "Affectedly cute", "Cute", "Sentimentally pretty", "Mawkish", "Precious - sentimental", "Excessively sentimental" and "Overly precious".)
