Today's Wordle hint and answer on Wednesday 10th July for 1117 (2)

Published on

On Wednesdays we might wear pink but we also work out the Wordle answer for today, 10th July 2024.

For the uninitiated, the aim of Wordle is to work out a daily five-letter word within six guesses. The fewer the guesses, the better - and if you fail to guess it at all, you'll break your streak.

The latter is why working out today's Wordle answer is such a priority, as players pride themselves on keeping their streak going. So why gamble on a risky final guess when you can learn a few clues and, failing that, get the definitive answer? This page can help with that.

Once you have today's word, learn more about Wordle and how the New York Times became interested in games in this interview with Jonathan Knight, Head of Games for the NYTimes. In keeping with the word theme, we've also discussed why The NYTimes Mini Crossword is a reliable joy.

Clues for today's Wordle answer

Instead of going straight to the answer, you might only need a few hints to get you over the line:

  • The word has two different vowels in it.
  • Today's word has no repeating letters in it.
  • This word starts with 'G'.
  • There are sorcerers of Tzeentch in the Warhammer 40k universe whose name have this word.

Still not sure? Read on for the answer.

Even with the above clues, still not sure and want to keep that streak going?

The Wordle answer today is GAUNT.

It took a few tries before I landed a single right letter. Only on my fourth try that I find the 'A'. But with a little bit of luck, I went with 'PLANT' as my next guess and 'GAUNT' as my last one.

Now you have the answer, do not spoil it for others! Remember, you can share your results spoiler-free in the form of a grid.

Of course, no one has to know you came to this page to work it out. Maybe put in two or three fake guesses first to throw them off the scent, perhaps?

Today's Wordle etymology

Word like 'GAUNT' reminds us of complicated moments in history. In the 15th century, the word was used to characterise those who were unwell mostly from hunger. The term might have come from the Old Norse word 'GAND' which was employed to indicate something or someone who was thin.

What to play after Wordle

With your daily Wordle completed, the question is - what shall you play now?

You can, of course, try out the other word-based games offered by the New York Times, like Spelling Bee, the Mini Crossword and Letter Boxed. You can also take a crack at Connections, the daily Sudokus and Tiles - a rather additive motif matching game.

There’s also a range of games which have put a twist on the Wordle formula. Squaredle challenges you to find a series of words by connecting letters in a four by four grid. Meanwhile Dordle, Quorodly, Octordly and Sedecordle all keep to the standard Wordle, while increasing the number of words you have to find. The challenge comes in how your guesses count for all of the words, so you need to decide whether you’re going to focus on a specific word or try to solve multiple words at the same time. Thankfully, the number of guesses you’re given increases alongside the amount of words you’re expected to solve.

If you want a break from spelling though, try GeoGuessr. Here you’ll be given a picture of somewhere, anywhere, in the world and have to place a marker on where you think that location is. There’s even an Old School RuneScape version.

Hope you enjoyed playing Wordle today!
