The answer to today's Wordle is: SCRAP.

Scrap — a minor squabble, or an off-cut piece of paper or metal? It's really all a matter of perspective. This is one of many, many times when the lovely English language has developed two completely different words that just happen to look and sound exactly the same. Luckily, whichever definition you had in mind, Wordle will recognise your answer as correct. Now that you've ticked this one off your daily word puzzle to-do list, to be sure to keep a lid on the solution until tomorrow to avoid spoilers for other players.
