Crossword Genius

Many a girl is kind (5)


I believe the answer is:


'is kind' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'many a girl' is the wordplay.
'many' becomes 'c' (C is the Roman numeral for l00).
'a girl' becomes 'lass' (lass can informally mean a girl).

(Other definitions for class that I've seen before include "sophistication" , "Kind" , "Body of students" , "26 [ORDER]" , "showing stylish excellence" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
