Today’s Word Answer (July 18 #759)
The 18th of July Wordle the answer is FLYING.
A fairly simple one for the day, but still a challenge. To our start Wordle word we used POUND which gave absolutely nothing but wrong letters. Next we tried IRATE, this locked two misplaced letters and showed us that there was only a single vowel in today’s word.
Assuming it was a repeated vowel, our third guess was REEFS, which showed a few more misplacements for ‘R’ and ‘E’ as well as adding an ‘F’ to the mix. Moving the ‘F’ in front helped immensely and almost instantly revealed to us the correct answer, giving us one Wordle win-in-four with FLYER.

- Wordle is a web-based word guessing game developed by Josh Wardle that took the world by storm in 2021. Players are given a five-letter word to guess and have six attempts to get the word correct. When they get a letter correct, it will mark itself as green if it is in the correct position and yellow if it is the correct letter in the wrong position. A yellow letter also means that the letter can appear more than once. Wordle was purchased by The New York Times Company in 2022 and added to their website and app, keeping the core game free to play as promised – with additional words and other bonuses available via subscription, and is available via browser, iOS and Android.
