Today’s Wordle answer is one of those words with a repeated letter, and those can be super tricky to guess. To make things easier on you, here are some clues that’ll hopefully nudge you toward the answer word. For the sake of players who prefer to work for their win, we’ll keep these hints subtle, but if you don’t mind the spoiler, you can skip to the second section where we reveal the full solution.
The word you’re looking for is an adjective that qualifies something as meaningless or pointless. For example, you could say that TV shows are [solution word] if they are empty of meaning or lacking in substance. Like yesterday’s answer, the solution word contains A and E, but this time they’re in the third and fifth positions respectively. A third vowel, I, is in the first position. It rhymes with remain, and the repeated letter (which we won’t reveal so as not to give too much away) is in the second and fourth positions.
The answer is ridiculous
The solution to today’s Wordle puzzle (#512 – November 13, 2022) is inane. If something is inane or someone behaves inanely, they’re showing a lack of depth or substance. The word is mostly used as an adjective, but it is acceptable as a noun as well, so you could say a promising conversation veered off into the inane. The word has a very succinct etymology — it traces back to an original Latin word “inanis” which means empty or void (via Etymonline).
We solved the puzzle one step faster than WordleBot today. Our opening guess word, hoist, was unlucky — there were still 243 possible options! But after guessing the word diner next, that number went down to three, and then we made a correct (and lucky) third guess. That makes it the second day in a row that we’ll have a three-try triumph. We hope you’re enjoying even better luck.
