Today’s Wordle #738 Hints, Clues And Answer For Tuesday, June 27th

News Room

Tuesday has arrived. The day is named after Tyr, one of the Aesir, the pantheon of major gods of Norse mythology. Tyr is often depicted as one-handed, having sacrificed his right hand to bind the monstrous god-wolf Fenrir. The god is depicted as an imposing giant in Sony’s God Of War reboot:

He’s also one of the few Norse gods in these games that isn’t a complete jerk. That fits with his role as a god of justice, honor and valor.

So happy Tyr’s day everyone! Let’s do this Wordle!

How To Solve Today’s Wordle #737 (Monday June 26th)

The Hint: Americans make fun of the way Canadians say this word.

The Clue: This word begins with a vowel.

The Answer:





Wordle Bot Analysis

I wanted a word with lots of vowels today and for whatever reason, agony seemed like a good—if bleak—choice. Two vowels and a ‘Y’. I suppose I was hoping it would be a word ending in ‘Y’ but instead, much to my surprise and happiness, I got both vowels in green instead.

With just 24 words remaining, I kind of screwed up my next guess but it worked out. I was thinking I really needed to narrow the field. Words like ‘afoot’ or ‘afoul’ had ‘L’ and ‘F’ and ‘U’ and ‘T’ and others had ‘B’ and so forth. I figured I’d knock out as many as possible and guessed flout, but I probably should have picked a word that didn’t use the ‘O’. Wordle Bot suggested ultra as a better option, but I’m not sure it’s that much better. Either way, I knew immediately what the answer had to be after that: about for the win!

Today’s Score:

Not bad at all today! I get 1 point for guessing in three and 1 point for beating Wordle Bot, who took four tries today. That’s 2 points! Huzzah!

Today’s Wordle Etymology

The word “about” has a relatively complex etymology. It originated from Old English as the word “abutan” or “onbutan,” which was a combination of the preposition “on” (meaning “on” or “around”) and the adverb “butan” (meaning “outside” or “without”). Over time, these two words merged to form “abutan.”

Can you solve today’s phrase?

The Old English “abutan” eventually evolved into Middle English, where it appeared as “abouten” or “abuten.” By the 14th century, the “en” ending was dropped, and the word became “about.”

The specific origins of the preposition “on” and the adverb “butan” can be traced back to various Germanic and Old Norse roots. “On” can be linked to the Proto-Germanic word “ana,” while “butan” is derived from the Old Norse word “bútan.”

Throughout its evolution, the word “about” retained its general meaning of “around” or “surrounding.” It is commonly used to indicate location, direction, or proximity in relation to something else. Additionally, “about” can function as an adverb to indicate approximately or roughly, as in “about 10 o’clock” or “about 5 miles.”
