The spectator crossword 2465. Unclued 18d - ?u?L?T is my last entry to complete the puzzle and I am having to guess that the six word answer is butcher related. Am I getting a chamberism?

Could it be a Pullet which butcher's sell?
Sorry about the incorrect apostrophe - I meant, of course, butchers.
No, it's Mullet - there's a funny definition for that!
It's Mullet..a hairstyle
The list of Chamberisms can be found in Brewers dictionary.
Short at the front ,long at the back and ridiculous all round :)
Can somebody explain what a chamberism is ?
Danny, it's Chambersism, as in Chambers, dictionary, ism. They used to have some funny definitions, alongside the real ones, for various words. Shaneystar's given you the one for mullet.
NAC, thanks.

That' s the answer I needed . My edition of Brewer has a limited mention of chamberisms. Many thanks to all who contributed and took me away from my guess of "cutlet"
