Who doesn’t enjoy a little Thursday Wordle action every now and again? While the answers in 2023 have been generally non-trivial, today’s answer on January 12 bucks that trend. While the word itself is somewhat common, it features an uncommon spelling and some interesting letter placements. We’d be surprised if any player was able to get this word in their first three guesses, but it’s not completely impossible to get without any help.
If you haven’t started the Wordle just yet, then you can check out our list of recommended starting words. However, if you’re already past the starting point, then you might be looking for some hints if you’ve hit a wall. Luckily, we provide just that further down in this guide. We will also spell out the full answer for players looking to simply get out of today unscathed.
Today’s Wordle Answer – January 12, 2022
We’ll begin with a few hints that directly relate to today’s Wordle answer, but don’t give it away immediately.
- Hint 1: This word is the past tense of a verb that can be defined as jumping a long distance. A synonym for the verb is “vault.”
- Hint 2: This word has two vowels, both in the middle of the word. The word has no repeating letters. It starts with “L” and ends with “t.”
If those hints weren’t enough to get the ball rolling for you, then you can keep reading for the full answer to the Wordle. The full answer to the January 12 Wordle is… “leapt.” It’s not the most common word in the world, and the “pt” at the end of it likely gave some players fits. Hopefully, every player was able to get this Wordle correct and continue their streak. Check back tomorrow for another edition of our Wordle guides.
