Each of these cryptic clues has three parts:
1. A regular definition of the answer.
2. An indicator word (or phrase) that tells you this is an anagram clue. This can be anything that hints at the letters being mixed up, rearranged, out of order, or even words like "drunk" or "wandering". Famously, almost any such word can be an anagram indicator.
3. A string of one or more words (the fodder) that include the letters of the answer in a different order.
For example, a clue for the word SAVE might look like this:
Rescue cracked vase (4)
1. "Rescue" is the regular definition.
2. "cracked" is the anagram indicator.
3. "vase" is the fodder, the letters of which can be rearranged
Note that the three parts of the clue can appear in almost any order, but the definition will always appear at the beginning or end of the clue (as with almost all kinds of cryptic clues).
