CHOICE WORDS

In this variety cryptic, starred clues call for a three-word answer of the form “_____ or ______.” The entire phrase is defined, but wordplay is given for only one of the choices. For example, HIT OR MISS might be clued “Carelessly contributes to omissions.” The wordplayed choice, MISS, is entered in the main grid. The other choice, HIT, is entered in the correspondingly numbered row of the Choice Words grid. The shaded column of the latter grid will reveal more Choice Words. Enumerations are withheld from the starred clues.
