Could not solve

I particularly enjoy solving the Times and Daily Mail Codewords and looked forward to tackling yours each week.

After several hours, however, I had to give up: The only letters given were “c” and “i” and having resorted to the Times crossword dictionary I found 18 examples of the first from “caecal” to “cruche” and 30 of the second from “bifid” to “visit”. Even the usual ploy of identifying “q” and “u” made no difference. I await publication of the finished result with fascination.
