China Girl's dictionary (8)


I believe the answer is:


'dictionary' is the definition.
(dictionary publisher)

'china girl's' is the wordplay.
'china' becomes 'ch'.
'girl's' becomes 'ambers' ().

(Other definitions for chambers that I've seen before include "Rooms for the judge and dictionary" , "Judge's room for hearing cases in private" , "Judge's room - dictionary" , "vaults" , "houses" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
