"Have you ever noticed that crosswords and crossword compilers seem to have their own obscure language? Words that you'd never think of using in everyday conversation appear in crosswords with head-scratching frequency. Here are a few of them!"

I'm only a little way through the crossword when I come across the clue for 3 down: "Esculent". Thanks to 1 across, I'm pretty sure it starts with an "e", but at that point I get stuck. What does "esculent" mean?
Oh, great - I always get stuck on this one! A three-letter word for "saturate"?
Another "e" word - 12 across asks for another word to define "striking effect". Which of these might it be?
In a happy coincidence, I've managed to form the answer to 30 down purely by filling in all the "across" words it connects with. The solution to 30 down ended up being "ebon". What is the most likely clue the crossword compiler would have given for such a word?
Hmmm . . 16 down . . I know this one . . Persian fairy?
Ah, a classic crossword word, this one! 24 down: "Mine entrance".
The clue for 19 across is "short gaiters". What on earth are they?
This is a tricky one. The clue for 20 down is "of the ear", and all I know is that its third letter is "i"!
I'm slowly getting there! Only a few more words to go now, one of which is 7 down - "devotional exercise".
In the same way as happened for 30 down, I've managed to fill in the solution for 29 across without even looking at the clue. I've got the word "etui" as the solution - what should the clue read?
