What is the Wordle answer 248? (February 22, 2022)
wordle answer 248
The Wordle answer 248 is “THORN.”
“THORN” is a noun that means “a stiff, sharp-pointed woody projection on the stem or other part of a plant.” (Definition from Oxford Languages.)
“THORN” shouldn’t be too tricky for players to work out. Though it only has one vowel, the other letters are relatively common. “T” and “R” are likely to be the first discovered consonants, with “N” and “H” being next. Then it’s just a case of figuring out the correct order. Hopefully during the six guesses “thorn” jumps out as a possibility.
For those struggling to get the answer, there’s a solid strategy that works well at eliminating letters. Provided you aren’t playing on Hard Mode, which puts a limit on guesses where correctly identified letters must be used in the following guesses, it’s possible to use each new guess to knock out as many potential letters as possible. As there are six total guesses, that means each letter can be used at least once. Then it’s just a case of making a great final guess with the remaining letters.
