Today’s Wordle Answer for Monday, April 15, 2024

If you still haven’t beaten today’s Wordle even with the clues provided above, the answer is below…

The answer to today’s Wordle is “EQUIP“.

The word “Equip” is a verb meaning to prepare or make ready for something. As in, “I need to equip myself with the skills needed for this job,” and “Before setting off on a trek, be sure to equip yourself with the tools needed”. Synonyms include “prepare,” “furnish,” and “outfit” (as a verb). Also of note is the word “equipment,” which refers to the resources or implements needed to be equipped.

According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the origin of “Equip” is the French word “√©quiper” meaning “to fit out”. This can be traced back even further to the Old French “esquiper,” which meant specifically fitting out a ship, and the Old Norse “skipa,” meaning to arrange or place in order. Over time, the word has evolved to be used for any preparation and not specifically anything maritime.

Our Top Wordle Tips (to Beat It Every Day)

  1. Choose a good starting word. There are plenty to choose from, so pick one from our list of the best Wordle starting words.
  2. Try to eliminate all five vowels early. As there are only a handful of vowels, it’s best to use them all within the first 2-3 guesses.
  3. Use popular letters early. As well as the vowels, letters such as T, S, N, R, H, C, D, and L appear most commonly in English words.
  4. Take your time over your guesses. Wordle isn’t timed, so there’s no rush to complete it. You can even guess on paper first.
  5. Remember that letters can appear twice (and often do). Keep this in mind when guessing, as forgetting it can lead you to mess up.
