How do I work out the Wordle answer?
Here are our top Wordle tips for getting the answer:
- Pick a starting word with lots of popular letters, such as ‘crane’ or ‘irate’.
- Focus on vowels and popular letters (A, E, I, O, U, S, R, L, T)
- Letters highlighted yellow can appear elsewhere – remember this!
- Remember what words have been in Wordle recently
What should I use as my Wordle starting word?
While choosing a word like ‘audio’ may seem like a good idea, given how many vowels are within, it’s not always recommended. How many words end in the letter ‘O’, after all?
So, we’ve defaulted to the classics. Based on a variety of studies, words like ‘CRANE’, ‘SOARE’, ‘IRATE’, and ‘ALTER’ are among the best starters. Experiment! And then find one that fits you.
