The Oracle

Where clues have two enumerations, the first one is the length of an intermediate word called the Kangaroo, which is the result of wordplay or is defined by part of the clue. The Kangaroo word carries a Joey word (with letters appearing consecutively and in the correct order) and is a theme word. The second enumeration is the length of the Joey word which is to be filled up in the grid. Annotation of a clue will involve arriving at the Kangaroo and highlighting the Joey carried by it. Some regular clues lead to thematic answers too.
