Today’s Wordle Answer November 1st

The Wordle answer today is piney.

Referring to something that has the characteristics of, be that smell or appearance, of pine wood or pine trees, the word “piney” can also be spelled “piny” without the “-e”, making today a particularly tricky test of your Wordle abilities.

Pine trees are found all over the world, but the English word comes from the Latin word “pinus”. And to this day, “pinus” also serves as the taxonomic genus for separating different species of pine trees.

While it might seem like a way to create new words in modern slang, the practice of adding “-y” to the end of a word as an adjective suffix meaning “full of, or characterised by” was already present in Old English. However, back then it was pronounced more like “-ig”.
