Wordle Bot Analysis

My guessing game came down to a coin toss today and I guess I had a bad penny or something because I once again screwed the pooch on this one. I got it in four, of course, which isn’t terrible—but it’s not as good as three, either.

In any case, micro was a pretty unique opening guess I thought, and it ended up being pretty good leaving me with just 67 words. Crape got me two greens and a yellow (and doesn’t a crape sound delicious, by the way?) and left me with just four words, which is still too many to easily guess. I thought of track first and guessed it, though I was fully aware it might be tract also. I just assumed track was more likely—and I was wrong! When you assume, after all, you make an ass out of u and me or something. Whatever, how was I to know? You have to flip a coin sometimes!

Today’s Score:

Total wash today. Zero points for guessing in four and I tied Wordle Bot so zero points there for a grand total of ZERO. I am a ZERO HERO.

Today’s Wordle Etymology

The word “tract” has its roots in Latin. It ultimately derives from the Latin word “tractus,” which is the past participle of the verb “trahere,” meaning “to draw” or “to pull.”

In Latin, “tractus” had a variety of meanings, including “a drawing,” “a pulling,” or “a dragging.” Over time, the word evolved and gained additional senses in different languages.

Can you solve today’s phrase?

In English, “tract” first appeared in the late 15th century, primarily as a noun referring to a defined area of land or a stretch of water. It was used to describe a measured portion of land used for various purposes, such as farming, construction, or surveying.

The term “tract” also developed other meanings over time. It can refer to a piece of writing or a pamphlet, often expressing a particular viewpoint or promoting a specific cause. This sense of the word emerged in the 17th century, reflecting the notion of a written document that was “drawn out” or “extended” to present a comprehensive argument or set of ideas.

So, the word “tract” evolved from its Latin origins, which emphasized drawing or pulling, to encompass various senses in English, including areas of land, written documents, and more.
