The solution to today’s Wordle answer is axiom. An axiom is a statement that is intrinsically true. In geometry, for example, an example of an axiom is that a line can extend to infinity — you don’t need proof to agree that’s true, it just is. An axiom is also any statement that serves as a premise for further reasoning or argument (via Merriam-Webster). The word comes from the French word “axiome,” Latin’s “axioma,” and Greek’s “axioma,” which literally translates to “that which is thought worthy or fit” (via Etymonline).
WordleBot said it took the average player five tries to solve today’s puzzle, and that’s not surprising considering the unusual structure of the word. It took us four tries, having started guessing with the words cause and folic, which narrowed down possible solutions from 199 to just two. Our third guess, amigo, turned two tiles green and made the answer apparent. We hope you find this article early enough to finish faster, and if you’re interested in more puzzle action, here are more games like Wordle to prolong the fun.
