Spicy spelling

 

Sir, – Simplex 17,664 has the clue, “spicy sausage”. The solution given is “peperoni”.

In Italian, peperoni is the plural of peperone, in English red peppers. Pepperoni is an American spicy sausage. The compiler(s) of Simplex have to be more careful in their use of Italian words. – Yours, etc,
