Today’s Wordle Answer (October 2nd, 2022): Puzzle 470 Hints, Clues, and Solution

My cat could bat a ball of this around for hours

No one can tell you exactly how long it will take you to guess today’s Wordle answer for October 2nd, 2022, only that it won’t be easy.

While the specific letters featured in Puzzle 470 aren’t hugely difficult on their own, it’s a bit of a niche or archaic word that doesn’t come up in everyday conversation very often - unless you work in construction or are really into arts and crafts, perhaps.

There is one tough letter though, which has only come up once over the last 30 days, so it’s not completely straightforward even if you’ve got a good vocabulary.

The first and last letters should be quite manageable however; they have come up five and six times in the same positions over the last month..

To help you make your own deductions, we’ve come up with some Wordle hints for October 2nd, 2022, to aid your guessing. While we’ve also updated our running list of recent solutions to give you some inspiration if you’re stuck.

Clues and hints for Today's Wordle Answer

Despite being billed as a relaxing game, the target word still takes some figuring out in Wordle - it doesn’t come tied up in a neat little package. And with just six guesses to narrow down the thousands of possibilities, it’s easy to lose the thread of the puzzle.

Your clues for Puzzle 470 are:

  • The answer contains two vowels in the third and fifth position
  • The first four letters spell out the name for two children who were born at the same time

Today’s Wordle Answer October 2nd

The Wordle answer today is twine.

Twine is a strong thread made up of multiple strands twisted together to stop them from unravelling. It’s this sense of twisting strands together that the word originated, coming from the Old English root “twi-” meaning two.

The Old English version of twine was more like “twin”, which meant “double thread”.

Before that, the word likely had a Germanic origin - most probably coming from the Old Norse word “tvinna”, which referred to doubling something up..
