Josh Wardle unveiled Wordle in October 2021, and it quickly gained worldwide acclaim. Its enduring appeal is evident as millions of users continue to enjoy the simple word game on a daily basis.
The game’s overwhelming popularity resulted in its acquisition by the New York Times in early 2022 for an undisclosed amount in the seven-figure range.
Wordle is a straightforward game—so if you haven’t played before, it’s easy to get started. The objective is to identify a five-letter word within six attempts by following a designated color system. Upon submitting your guesses, you will be shown which letters match with your guesses. If a box turns gray, it indicates that the letter does not appear in the word. Yellow signifies that the letter is present in the word but not at the position guessed. And finally, obtaining a green square means that you have correctly guessed both the letter and its position.
In an interview with Newsweek, Erhan Aslan, a professor of applied linguistics at the University of Reading in the U.K., shared some expert advice for Wordle players to optimize their strategy for solving the popular puzzle.
“One thing that I think is important in this game is the starting word chosen,” he said. “Starting off with words that include commonly used vowels, for example, e and a, consonants such as r and t, and sound sequences might be helpful.
“Choosing a word that starts with q, z, j, or x, for instance, may not be the best choice. As you get more feedback after a few guesses, users need to draw on some knowledge of phonics to narrow down or eliminate some words that they might be thinking.”
