Scribe sounds more correct (6)


I believe the answer is:


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

'sounds more correct' is the wordplay.
'sounds' shows a homophone (sound like).
'more correct' becomes 'righter' ('right' can be a synonym of 'correct').
'righter' sounds like 'WRITER'.

(Other definitions for writer that I've seen before include "Pope, for example" , "See 4" , "Scribe, author" , "Novelist" , "See 1, 12, 15, 23 across and 3, 6, 9 down" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
