Swedish-style grid Barred grid where bold bars are used instead of shaded blocks to separate the words Crossword grids such as those appearing in most North American newspapers and magazines feature solid areas of white squares.
Every letter is checked i. In such puzzles shaded squares are typically limited to about one-sixth of the total. For example, if the top row has an answer running all the way across, there will often be no across answers in the second row. Another tradition in puzzle design in North America, India, and Britain particularly is that the grid should have degree rotational also known as "radial" symmetryso that its pattern appears the same if the paper is turned upside down.
Most puzzle designs also require that all white cells be orthogonally contiguous that is, connected in one mass through shared sides, to form a single polyomino. The design of Japanese crossword grids often follows two additional rules: The "Swedish-style" grid picture crosswords uses no clue numbers, as the clues are contained in the cells which do not contain answers.
Arrows indicate in which direction the clues have to be answered: This style of grid is also used in several countries other than Sweden, often in magazines, but also in daily newspapers. The grid often has one or more photos replacing a block of squares as a clue to one or several answers, for example, the name of a pop star, or some kind of rhyme or phrase that can be associated with the photo.
These puzzles usually have no symmetry in the grid but instead often have a common theme literature, music, nature, geography, events of a special year, etc. Substantial variants from the usual forms exist.
Two of the common ones are barred crosswords, which use bold lines between squares instead of shaded squares to separate answers, and circular designs, with answers entered either radially or in concentric circles.
Grids forming shapes other than squares are also occasionally used. Puzzles are often one of several standard sizes. The New York Times puzzles also set a common pattern for American crosswords by increasing in difficulty throughout the week: Their larger Sunday puzzle is about the same level of difficulty as a weekday-size Thursday puzzle.
Typically clues appear outside the grid, divided into an Across list and a Down list; the first cell of each entry contains a number referenced by the clue lists.
For example, the answer to a clue labeled "17 Down" is entered with the first letter in the cell numbered "17", proceeding down from there. Numbers are almost never repeated; numbered cells are numbered consecutively, usually from left to right across each row, starting with the top row and proceeding downward.
Some Japanese crosswords are numbered from top to bottom down each column, starting with the leftmost column and proceeding right. This ensures a proper name can have its initial capital letter checked with a non-capitalizable letter in the intersecting clue.Watch video · Old English / Anglo-Saxon (Ænglisc) Old English was the West Germanic language spoken in the area now known as England between the 5th and 11th centuries.
