I just did the crossword from USA Today from Nov 26 (Ya, I’m working through a bit of a backlog). This contained a word that I can’t find any reference to: Areel. The clue was “Staggering.” I finally came to this answer by filling in everything around it and I’m fairly sure that all else is correct. I’m assuming that the way they got to this is that if someone is reeling, then they are “areel,” but I can’t find this word in any of the online dictionaries that I’ve searched. Is this an actual usage, or are they being overly creative?
