Today’s Wordle #585 tips and answers for the Wednesday 25th January challenge
Thousands of people around the world have graduated Wordl Part of their daily routine, with the pun showing few signs of losing its viral popularity.
The rules of Wordl are very simple and no doubt help explain its viral growth after first being released to the public in October 2021.
Each day, the player must guess a new five-letter word in six or fewer tries. After each guess, the letters change color, showing you how close you were to the answer. When a letter turns green, it is both in the word and where you place it. Yellow means the letter has features but not where you placed it, while gray tells you it’s not included at all.
Wordl was originally developed by New York software developer Josh Wardle during the coronavirus lockdown as a game “for me and my partner to enjoy”.
In January 2022 Wardle sold Wordl to the New York Timesfor an undisclosed seven-figure fee.
In conversation with news weekErhan Aslan, Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Reading in the UK, shared some tips on playing the game.
He said: “One thing that I think is important in this game is the seed word chosen. Start with words that might contain commonly used vowels (e.g. e, a), consonants (e.g. r, t) and tone sequences Choosing a word that starts with q, z, j or x, for example, may not be the best choice.
“If you get more feedback after a few guesses, users will have to resort to some knowledge of phonetics to narrow down or eliminate some words they might be thinking of. For example, if the second letter of the target word is L (indicated by green ) and the player feels that the word starts with a consonant, they need to know that there are few consonant cluster possibilities (e.g. bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl).”
