Wednesday is back and that means it’s time for Wordle Wednesday!
Each week, set aside two special days to spice up this column. On Wednesdays, I post a puzzle for Wordlers to solve and submit the answer on Thursdays.
You are free to send me the solution in advance Twitter or Facebook.
Today’s riddle: What comes once a minute, twice every moment, but not a thousand years later?
Good luck solving the puzzle!
Well, let’s do this Wordle! (I wrote the puzzle, and had to delete).
How to solve Wordle today
hint: to speak. But also: complete, absolute.
Hint: This word begins with a vowel.
The origin of the word Wordle today
The word “utter” has its roots in Old English and has undergone various changes in form and meaning over time. Its origin can be traced back to the Proto-Germanic language.
The Old English word for “utter” was “utian,” meaning “to put out” or “to expel.” This verb is derived from the Proto-Germanic word “*utaz”, which means “outside”.
Over the centuries, the meaning of “absolute” has evolved. In Middle English, it began to include the meaning of expressing or speaking out loud, which is closer to its modern meaning. The term “pronunciation” came to refer to the articulation or utterance of words or sounds, especially in a clear or distinct manner.
Interestingly, “utter” is also related to other English words that share the same Proto-Germanic root. For example, “external,” “external,” and “external” all derive from the same root, highlighting the connection between the idea of ”outside” and the word “utter.”
Wordle Bot Analysis
After I complete Wordle, I always head over to check in word bot To see how you scored, both in terms of everyone’s guess and whether or not you beat the bot.
My guessing game today is a good example of how you can reduce bad luck with good follow-up guesses. my editorial –doily-It was the worst word I’ve had in a few weeks, which leaves me with 604 possible solutions left.
It seemed like the right time to come up with a more traditional opening for my second guess, sure enough cage did the trick. With only 20 words left, I still only had a 5% chance of guessing correctly (although I didn’t know it at the time, I knew there were a lot of possibilities left). I again chose to choose a word that uses letters from the various words I could think of as possible solutions: Berg I tested the last remaining vowel, as well as a few I needed to exclude like “H” and “B”.
This was a good strategy, with all but one of the remaining words thrown out: Absolutely complete.
Today’s result: I get 0 points for guessing 4 points and 1 point for losing to a robot that only guessed 3 points today (slate / caliber / utter). “It’s a loss, but it’s not Absolutely complete Defeat,” he said to himself.
