Wordle May 10, 2022 answer
Another day, another spoiler warning! Read on only if you are happy to find out the answer for Wordle, May 10, 2022, as it appears right below the following image.
Today’s Wordle answer is… GECKO. An adorable, friendly lizard (or regrettable gap-year tattoo), Geckos can be found across the world, and come in many different sizes, colors and even habitats. Not only are they camouflaged to help protect them from predators, but they can also shed their tails if grabbed by a hungry enemy!
As a word, gecko is fairly uncommon. While “ck” is a very common digraph at the end of a word, it’s far less common in places three and four of a five-letter word. Especially when you consider that Wordle answers are rarely (if at all) plurals. However, a five-letter word ending in “O” isn’t as uncommon as you’d perhaps think, though many of them aren’t really everyday words.
What was the original Wordle answer for May 10, 2022?
Another spoiler alert!
The first word, which, as mentioned, could still come up for some, was “butch”. This term, while has been claimed by some LGBTQ+ individuals as a positive description, is known to be used by non-allies as a derogatory word, the reason we believe is behind its removal from today’s Wordle.
