Play on words (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

pun

'play on words' is the definition.
(synonyms)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for pun that I've seen before include "Bit of paronomasia; witticism" , "Form of wordplay" , "A play on words, perhaps the lowest form of wit" , "A play on words - not the height of wit" , "A play on words, not really wit" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Times, The Sun, The Independent, The Irish Independent, The Mirror, the Evening Standard and The Telegraph.
