Wordle can be hard. Like, really, really, hard. It’s for that reason alone that no one can possibly blame you for seeking answers online. If a word game in 2022 uses words that were predominantly used in 1842, someone involved in the creation of the game enjoys seeing people suffer.

Wordle can also be fun. Like, really, really, fun. It can be just as exciting to participate in the social element as it is to play the game itself. Wordle challenges players with a unique daily word, and gives them only six chances to guess it with the clues provided. If you get it wrong, you’re forced to live with the shame and angst of a thousand suns. If you get it right, it’s just an ordinary Wordle kind of day.

Finding the Wordle of the Day

So, to avoid said shame and angst, we here at Gamer Journalist would like to extend an olive branch to the average Wordle connoisseur. Instead of only giving the answers, we’ll start by offering up hints. If, after considering the hints, you cannot seem to figure out what the word is, then you can scroll down to find the answers. And, as I mentioned before, there is no shame in skipping ahead to the answers.

If you bookmark this page, you’ll be able to incorporate it into your morning routine. But, be warned — if you decide to continue scrolling, you surrender the right to complain about spoilers. Also, don’t be the kind of person who brags about getting the answer right when all you did was read this page. I have a five-letter word for people like that: BRUSK. It’s up to you to decide if you see this guide as a Wordle cheat code.

It’s that time again! As is the usual, we won’t immediately give today’s word away, but rather, I’ll offer hints to help you reach the answer on your own. If you still can’t get it after the hints — again, no shame, this game can be difficult — then at that point, we’ll give away the correct answer.

So, here are the clues for October 6, 2022:

  • There is ONE vowel in today’s word.
  • This word starts with the letter S and ends with the letter H.
  • There is ONE syllable in today’s word.

*to be clear, when I say vowel, I am referring to A, E, I, O, and U. 

We can imagine that you’ve figured out today’s word by now, but just in case … 

Here’s a BONUS CLUE for you: In the hit anime Fullmetal Alchemist, this word is the name of one of the Homunculi. 

If you’re still confused about today’s word of the day, let’s proceed to the answer:

Today’s Wordle Answer

The Wordle for today, October 6, is SLOTH. 

Did you get the correct answer? If not, better luck tomorrow!

The Meaning Behind Today’s Wordle

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines SLOTH as: disinclination to action or labor, or, any of various slow-moving arboreal edentate mammals (genera Bradypus and Choloepus) that inhabit tropical forests of South and Central America, hang from the branches back downward, and feed on leaves, shoots, and fruits. Its first known usage dates back to the 12th century, and it has roots in the Middle English word slouthe.

Yesterday’s Wordle Answer

The Wordle for yesterday, October 5, is MARSH.

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines MARSH as: a tract of soft wet land usually characterized by monocotyledons (such as grasses or cattails). Its first known usage dates back to before the 12th century, and it has roots in the Middle English word mersh, which was taken from the Old English words merisc and mersc.

How Does Wordle Work?

Wordle at its heart is a puzzle game, think Sudoku or crossword puzzles but for the digital age. Currently, you can play Wordle from the official New York Times website. It’s free to play as well. While there’s no official mobile app (don’t get fooled by clones), you can still play from your mobile. The goal of Wordle is to guess a five-letter word in a limited number of chances.

How Do You Play Wordle?

The objective is to guess the hidden WORDLE in six attempts or less. Each guess must be a five-letter word, and the color of the tiles will show you how close you are to the answer. Green letters mean the letter is in the Wordle at the exact location. Yellow letters mean the letter is in the Wordle in a different location.

What Is the Optimal Strategy for Wordle?

It’s better to go into the game with a strategy than blindly guessing. While any letter can appear in the game, some letters have better statistical odds than others. The following nine letters appear more often than others: A, I, N, L, 0, E, I, S, R, T. In fact, with the letter E, you can almost cut the number of guesses in half. There’s a total of 1,259 words that don’t have E and 1,056 words with an E.

It may be tempting to try multiple vowels, but you have much better odds if you guess words that have only one vowel. From there you can help narrow things down. But don’t be afraid to break out the dictionary or use our Wordle helper if you get truly stumped.

How Do You Share Wordle Results?

After solving a puzzle, a box will pop up with your results. You can tap on the green share button to copy your results to the clipboard and share them. If you accidentally closed the popup, you can tap on the statistics button at the top of the page. After tapping the share button, you can press CTRL+V to share your results!

When Does Wordle Reset?

A new Wordle is available every day at midnight in your local time.
