Eject out of spite? (4)
I believe the answer is:
'eject' is the definition.
I can't explain the rest of the clue.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for spit that I've seen before include "Large skewer - expel saliva" , "Headland, saliva" , "double, perhaps" , "Eject with violence" , "Roasting spear" .)
