It’s Wordle Wednesday again, folks, the first Wordle Wednesday of April. You may not remember this, but I recently started doing something special on Wordle Wednesdays and Fridays. Fridays are double XP days, so you get double the score (good or bad) when playing by my Competitive Wordle rules (see below). Wednesdays, on the other hand, are dedicated to puzzles. I will post a riddle every Wednesday and you will try to solve it. If you do, let me know about Twitter or facebook. I’ll also (try to remember to) post the answer on Thursday’s Wordle post.
Here is today’s puzzle:
What is the only place where today comes before yesterday?
Good luck, dear Wordlers. May the force be with you.
GOOD . . . . Let’s do this Wordle!
How to solve today’s word
The index: Hulk is big in there.
The index: This word contains a double letter.
Man oh man, my first guess was so good today! So good but I’ve always only had it in three. It’s funny that you can guess a word that leaves you with 300 words left or one that leaves you with only six and still get the answer in two more guesses.
In all cases, share was my monkey attempt slate (Word Bot daily opening guess) by guessing many of the same letters. Turns out it worked pretty well, especially since I had the “H” in it. From there I suspected the word had to end in ‘H’ and that meant it probably ended in ‘SH’ so I guessed one of many ‘ASH’ words I could think of (among slash, hide, break etc) and came with four green boxes. Again, I knew I had a few to go through, so I just guessed what I found next: to break. Fortunately, that was the correct answer.
Wordle Bot also got it in three today, so that’s 1 point for guessing in three and zero for tying the Bot. Not too bad!
Today’s Wordle Etymology (Via ChatGPT)
The word “smash” has an interesting etymology. It is believed to have originated in the 18th century as a verb and later evolved into a noun. Here is a breakdown of its etymology:
- Verb form: The verb “smash” comes from the Middle English word “sma(c)shen”, derived from the Old English “smeascian” or “smeoscan”, which means “to break into pieces” or “to crush”. These Old English words are related to the Old Norse word ‘smjúga’, which means ‘crawl, crawl’, and the Middle Low German word ‘smēssen’, which means ‘to crush, crush’.
- Noun form: The noun “smash” is believed to have originated in the late 18th century as a slang term for a violent collision or loud impact. It is probably derived from the verb form of “smash”, described above, which was used to describe the act of breaking or crushing something into pieces.
Over time, the word “smash” has taken on various meanings and uses beyond its original definition of a violent collision, and it is now commonly used in contexts such as describing success or popularity, such as in “box office smash” or “social networks”. smash.” Its etymology reflects its history and evolution as an all-purpose word in the English language. Thus, the word “smash” has its roots in Old English, Old Norse, and Middle Low German, and has undergone changes semantics and changes throughout its history to become the word we know and use today.
Note: ChatGPT totally freaked out when I asked this question. he started repeating the same phrase over and over and over again. I thought it could go on, To infinity, and eventually to break the Internet. Here is a screenshot:
Thus, the word “smash” has its roots in Old English, Old Norse and Middle Low German, and underwent semantic shifts and changes throughout its history to become the word we know and use today. . So the word “smash”. . . .
