I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'regarding what you say he understands' is the definition.
The answer is a person as well as being a singular noun. This is suggested by the definition.

'you say he understands' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'you' could be 'reader' (I've seen this before) and 'reader' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'lip' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for lip-reader that I've seen is " Person interpreting from mouth movements".)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
