The answers to today's Quordle, game #867, are…

  • ABIDE

  • TERRA

  • THUMP

  • CLUNG

Some nice words in today's Quordle. THUMP is a favorite of mine; it has a pleasing onomatopoeic quality thanks to the soft MP at the end. CLUNG is a much harder sound, with the CL and the NG competing for prominence. I like saying both. I didn't like solving CLUNG quite so much; I lost a guess on CLUNK first, but that was the only real challenge for me here, with my starter words giving me a good start on all four words.
