Miss ordered to start with German (4)


I believe the answer is:


'miss' is the definition.
(I know that miss can be written as omit)

'ordered to start with german' is the wordplay.
'to start' says to take the initial letters.
'with german' becomes 'mit' ('with' in German).
The initial letter of 'ordered' is 'o'.

(Other definitions for omit that I've seen before include "Leave out or neglect" , "Exclude; veto" , "Exclude - neglect" , "Leave out or exclude" , "Leave out or overlook" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
