Wordle #1,060 daily hints: May 14th, 2024

Wordle is a wonderful daily challenge that allows you to expand your vocabulary and broaden your linguistic horizons.

But perhaps you’re stuck and running out of attempts. Don’t worry – we’ve got you.

Tune in daily for our daily Wordle hints, where we give tips on conquering the Wordle challenge.

How to play

Wordle isn’t as complex as some of the other New York Times games, such as Spelling Bee and Sudoku.

Sometimes, you’ll just get lucky. Other times, you’ll need to access your mind's built-in dictionary to complete the task.

The rules:

  • Think of a five-letter word and press enter to start.
  • Complete the puzzle using the color-coded letters (green, yellow, and grey) and figure out the five-letter word.
  • You have six attempts to solve the puzzle.

Meaning of colors in Wordle:

  • Green tiles will appear if you have a letter in the correct spot.
  • Yellow tiles mean you have guessed the correct letter, but it’s in the wrong place.
  • Greyed-out letters on the keyboard show that these letters do not appear in the word.

Here are your Wordle hints for today:

Hint 1

The word contains two vowels.

Hint 2

There are double letters in this word

Hint 3

The word starts with the letter A.

Hint 4

You may use this word if you came to inherit a large fortune.

Wordle’s origin story

The game was created in 2013 by Josh Wardle, a Reddit employee who created the prototype ‘Wordle’ based on his last name.

The project was abandoned until 2021, when he decided to finish this game for his partner.

During the pandemic, the pair supposedly reviewed the game and reduced the word list from 12,000 five-letter words to just 2,500.

The game was published on a freely accessible website, and players grew from 90 to 300,000 in a matter of months.

In 2022, the New York Times announced they had bought Wordle for an unknown price.
