    Sorry been busy, no.

     

    Given the amount of time, since I’ve been away, I think I’ll add a hint.

    Ambiguous is a good answer for ‘not clear’, but it doesn’t meet the ‘just as loud’ part.

    So not clear =  the answer, which is made up of a couple of words added together for ‘just as loud’.

    Think of ‘just as loud’ as voice.

    Think of the word for just as loud in terms of a word for ‘of similar distance’ but relating to voice, not distance.

    The word meaning ambiguous.

    I’ll give you  a couple of letters to start:

    E???????L

    It’s perhaps more often seen in the antonym form:

    une???????l

    Silent P.

    19th November 2021 at 9:46 am #563369

    Bit ambiguous that last hint.
    Cryptically quiet or silent often refers to the letter P. , it does in this clue, but the P in the answer is not silent.
