The answer to today’s Wordle is …

SHORN

Today’s Wordle definition

And here’s what it means, according to our good friend ChatGPT: “Shorn” is the past participle of the verb “to shear,” which means to cut off or remove. It’s often used in the context of shearing wool from sheep. So, if a sheep has been shorn, it means that its wool has been cut off. “Shorn” can also be used more broadly to describe anything that has been cut off or removed. For example, a tree might be described as shorn of its leaves.”

Tips for tomorrow’s Wordle

While it may appear that Wordle is purely a game of chance, there are actually some effective strategies you can employ to maximize your clues with minimal guesses, thereby increasing your odds of deciphering the final word within the given attempts. Your initial guess is critical, and a good strategy is to make use of vowels (A, E, I, O, and U).

There are several starting words like “adieu,” “media,” “arise,” and “radio” that players have found to be particularly useful. However, avoid words with repeating letters to conserve your precious guesses. The goal is to identify the vowels present in the mystery word, then add common consonants, and gradually narrow down your options.

For your second word, given that your first guess provided a solid foundation, start incorporating more common consonants such as R, S, and T. Successful options include “stern,” “irate,” and “atone.” Always remember to avoid using any letters from previous rounds that appeared in gray as they are not part of the word.

With the mystery solved, and the definition clarified, you are now equipped with some handy tips to conquer tomorrow’s Wordle.
