Today's Wordle hint and answer on Tuesday 9th July for 1116 (2024)

How to narrow down and solve today's Wordle.

Whether it's a sunny or rainy Tuesday, sparing a few minutes to solve a puzzle might be what you need. We can help you with the Wordle answer for today, 9th 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:

  • Today's word has two different vowels in it.
  • There are no repeating letters in this word.
  • This word starts with 'B'.
  • The words involves uttering a loud sound.

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 BLARE.

It would have been fun if the answer for today's Wordle puzzle was 'BLAZE' since I tried this one yesterday. Unfortunately, it was not. I began the game with my lucky word 'BACON', which, followed by 'BEACH', was enough to put me on the right track. My third guess was 'BLASE', and then I had four of the five letters. However, this didn't make things easier for me. I failed to find the answer since I thought of four words with these letters but none was the right 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

'BLARE' is one of those terms we don't have lots of information about its origin. What we know is that it appears in the late 14th century, probably from the Middle Dutch word 'BLEREN', meaning to shout. The noun appears later in the 19th century.

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!
