A year has passed since then Wordl was first revealed to the public in October 2021 by New York software developer Josh Wardle, but the game continues to grow in strength. Invented by Wardle during coronavirus lockdown as a game ‘for me and my partner to enjoy’ Wordl became an online sensation and was later bought by the New York Times for a seven-figure sum.
Speak with news week Joel C. Wallenberg, Lecturer in Language Development at the University of York, UK, explained why language games are so popular.
He said: “Language always seems to fascinate people. Perhaps this is because producing and understanding language is a fantastically complex process, and we are only aware of the smallest part of this process as it goes on; most of what we do when we speak, we do unconsciously, but people may have an inkling that when they speak they are doing something very involved and impressive, even if they don’t know the details or why should be like that.
“Language games show how conscious (or unconscious) we are of our own linguistic processes, and perhaps give us a little more insight into them than before. That could be one reason why humans, perhaps in general, have always invented and enjoyed language games.”
