Episode 2258 was broadcast on 11 May 1998, as part of Series 38.

Stuart McQuitty played Stephen Webber, with Stuart McQuitty winning 49 – 17. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gloria Hunniford, and the lexicographer was Mark Nyman.

NOTE: In round 3, McQuitty's declaration of TASSLE should have been disallowed, as the dictionary only has TASSEL in it, so the final score should have been 42 – 17.
