Jerseyman, for example, I defame (8)
I believe the answer is:
'jerseyman for example' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.
'i defame' is the wordplay.
'defame' becomes 'slander' (synonyms).
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for islander that I've seen before include "Eg, a Manxman" , "End rails (anag)" , "one from Jersey, perhaps" , "Rum person perhaps" , "One living away from mainland" .)
