224 debut answer words from Alex Eaton-Salners

45 daily crosswords

Almost every NYT puzzle introduces new answer words. This page collects answer words debuted by a single constructor.

Even better, the "reused" table also shows reused words — answers debuted by Alex Eaton-Salners that have since appeared in later crosswords. Numbers in brackets show the total number of times each word has been used, if more than 2.

Fine print: This page is only available for Shortz Era constructors. Words here debuted in the Shortz Era and have never appeared before in any NYT daily crossword including pre-Shortz ones. Variety puzzles are not included in the calculations for this page.
