Today’s Wordle Answer #587 – January 27, 2023 Solution And Hints

If the solution is still a mystery to you, or you skipped the first section to cut to the chase, today’s prize word is “worry.” You might already know that it means to fret or become agitated about the outcome of something, but you probably didn’t know that some British dialects use the term to mean strangling or choking.

This is because the original root word, “wirien,” translates as “to slay, kill, or injure by biting and shaking the throat,” like a wolf does to its prey (via Etymonline). It’s from Old English “wyrgan” and Proto-Germanic “wurgjan,” which means to strangle. The word ceased to be used in the context of strangling or choking around the 1600s, and evolved into the figurative meaning “to feel anxiety or mental unrest” by the 1800s, possibly because deep worry does make one feel like your breath is about to be snatched from you at any moment.

Like yesterday, we solved the puzzle one step faster than WordleBot, and that’s immensely satisfying. Our first guess, “share,” was more random than strategic, but it reduced the possible answers to a mere 21 from 2,315. After that, we tried the word “curry,” which left us with only two possible solutions, then we made a lucky third guess. We hope you do finish just as fast, or even faster, and if you’re itching for more puzzles, you might be interested in these other games similar to Wordle.
