Crisscross Crunch

Here we have a puzzle suffering a tight squeeze. The answer words read straight across or straight down, but they overlap by one, two, three, or four letters. For example, the answer “battLE” might overlap the answer “LEgs” by two letters. To help you solve, we’ve put the clues for Across and Down in alphabetical order according to answers, and we’ve given the word lengths in parentheses. Answer as many clues as you can, and then try to fit them in the grid. We’ve placed letters to get you started.
