Wordle explanations are posted a day late to ensure that no one accidentally sees the solution before playing.
Line 1: One of my typical start words. I am seriously beginning to hate the lone, misplaced “E”.
Line 2: More letter elimination, but still that misplaced “E”.
Line 3: Okay, now we are getting somewhere. I know “money” was a previous solution (Wordle #337), but even if the word is not the solution, maybe I can get some more leads, and to that, playing this worked.
Line 4: “V” is a tricky letter. It isn’t all that common, but it does have this tendency to show up regularly enough that it shouldn’t be forgotten. It’s one of the six not in any of my base words (Q, X, J, Z, V, & K) but of these six, is probably the most common to be played. Playing the “V” works out here, but I still don’t have the “N” in the right place.
Line 5: This is actually a common trick in Wordle… Looking at “oven”, it makes one think of the word, but that adding a consonant to it would still sound the same, such as with the word “coven”. However, since we already knew that there is no “C”, going through the alphabet gives us “woven”, which doesn’t sound similar at all. I have had this “trick” of the Wordle writer(s) trip me up in the past, but today wasn’t too bad.
