The perfect solution is rhymes with credit
The solution to today’s Wordle puzzle (#429 August 22, 2022) is merit. As a verb, this means “to be worth or entitled or prone to,” in accordance withMerriam-Webster, so when a noun, it could describe a praiseworthy quality, or perhaps a character or conduct deserving reward, honor, or esteem. In the theological context of several religions, in addition, it means good deeds or righteous acts done hoping of another reward from God.
The term merit has roots in Middle English (originally meaning “deserved reward or punishment”), from Old French, produced from the Latin word “meritum,” this means “due reward.” The English word is most likely cognate with Ancient Greek’s “mros,” this means an element, part, or portion.
Today we solved the puzzle in four tries, despite the fact that we started with among the WordleBot’s favorite opening words: crane. WordleBot said it had been an unlucky starting place today, as there have been still 250 possible solutions from then on guess. Not comforting at all, since all we’d left were five guesses. But after using the words Peter and berth, which WordleBot approved of, we landed at merit on the fourth guess. Hopefully you solve the puzzle in fewer guesses!
