US words in Wordle’s dictionary

I enjoy playing Wordle over breakfast every day. It’s a wonderful little game, but the US spellings sometimes cause me some pain!

This made me wonder how many US words were in its dictionary. I had a look at the JavaScript source and found it uses a dictionary of 2315 words. That’s a lot to look through manually, so I ran it through a spell checker (MS Word UK English) and found the following 21 words:

apneafecalmoldy
arborfetalrumor
ardorfibersavor
armorfurortumor
boneyhonorvalor
colorhumorvigor
favorlaborwooly

It would be easy enough to substitute a different dictionary of course (and I suspect someone probably already has).
