How to Solve Today’s Wordle

The tip: Not kosher.

The clue: This word starts with a consonant.

The answer:




Etymology of Today’s Wordle

The word “swine” comes from the Old English “swīn”, which refers to a pig or pig. The term can be traced back to the Proto-Germanic word “*swīnan”, which had a similar meaning. This Proto-Germanic term is believed to have derived from the Proto-Indo-European root “*sū-” or “*sū̆i-“, meaning “swine” or “pig”.

The word “swine” has cognates in other Germanic languages, such as Old High German “sū”, Old Norse “svín”, and Middle Dutch “swijn”. These languages ​​share a common ancestor with Old English and evolved from the same Proto-Germanic language.

Over time, “swine” has remained relatively unchanged in its meaning, referring to domesticated pigs. It is worth noting that “pig” is usually used to refer to the species collectively or in a more generic sense, while “pig” is often used to refer to young or small domesticated pigs, and “pig” is used to refer to larger domesticated swine animals, especially those raised for meat.

Wordle Bot Review

After completing a Wordle, I always go to check-in with Wordle Bot to see how I scored, both in terms of each individual guess and whether or not I outsmarted the Bot.

This was better than I expected after my first guess, from them, which I guess I thought for lack of anything better. Two yellow boxes and over 100 words left. I decided to invert the letters with speech and narrowed the remaining options down to three, though I could only think of one.

In fact, first I almost walked in shine but then I remembered that I had already used an ‘H’ so I went with swine instead, for the win! My luck!

Today’s Score: I get 1 point for guessing on threes and 0 points for tying the Wordle Bot, for an overall total of 1 point. Since it’s 2XP on Friday, this doubles to 2 points. Alive!
