More word squares - might be the odd toughie or sneaky one included. Usual deal - I give you the clues (not in the correct order evil ), you solve the squares.

-1. Straight, lifeless
Open
Annoys
Indonesian Island

-2.Revert to a previous state
Domesticated draught animal
Without variation
Yield or submit

-3. Aquatic bird
Highest point
Christmas
Texan city

4. Inexperienced or member of a religious order
Manage to avoid or get away from
Idle chatter, usually light-hearted, playful, teasing
What Richard III desired - think Shakespeare (2 words)
Characteristic of a certain group, usually native or aboriginal
Staggered, whirled about

… and now one for those who find the above far too easy. This one is not symmetrical - the across answers are different from the down answers, and (as you might have guessed) both sets of clues are mixed together.

-5. Style of setting jewels
Divisible by the first prime number with zero remainder
Arboreal genus
Sword
Copies
Surpasses
Cause to go
Aquatic grass

think on #5. Here's what I've got so far but can't justify "cape" as a synonym of surpasses.

<Gives embarrassed whistle and attempts to sidle out the door unnoticed>

Would you believe it was a typing error and I meant to type "Sleeveless outer garment"?

Hmmm - thought not. O.K. - it's a fair cop. It was the clue from a previous version that didn't work out for the word "caps".

Again, Cheryl, praise praise
