Wordle remains an extremely popular game played by countless people worldwide. First made public in 2021, the simple word puzzle became an instant smash hit in the English-speaking world.
Wordle is very simple. All that is required is to guess the day’s word in as few tries as possible. The game generates one five-letter word every 24 hours, and players have six attempts to guess it correctly.
If a letter is in the right place, a tile turns green. If it is in the wrong place, but is still present in the correct answer, it turns yellow. If it is not in the word at all, the tile goes gray.
Joel C. Wallenberg, senior lecturer in language change at the University of York in the U.K., said Wordle‘s popularity demonstrates people’s interest in language.
He previously told Newsweek: “Language always seems to be fascinating to people. This is perhaps because producing and understanding language is a fantastically complex process, and we are only aware of the tiniest bit of that process while it’s going on; most of what we do when we speak, we do unconsciously.
“But it may be that people have an inkling that they’re doing something very involved and impressive when they speak, even if they don’t know the details or why it should be that way.
“Language games poke at how conscious, or unconscious, we are of our own linguistic processes, and maybe give us a little more insight into them than we had before. That might be one reason why humans, maybe universally, have always invented and enjoyed language games.”
