Today’s Wordle Credit: Erik Kain Today’s Wordle Etymology The word “igloo” comes from the Inuktitut language, which is spoken by the Inuit people of Arctic regions, including parts of Alaska, Canada, and Greenland. In Inuktitut, the term for an igloo is “iglu,” pronounced “ee-gloo.
” The etymology of the word can be traced back to the Proto-Eskimo-Aleut language, which is the common ancestral language of both the Eskimo and Aleut language families. In Proto-Eskimo-Aleut, the term “iɣdlu” meant “house” or “building. ” Over time, this term evolved into “iglu” in Inuktitut.
The igloo itself is a traditional type of shelter made from blocks of compacted snow. It is a dome-shaped structure with excellent insulating properties, allowing it to provide warmth and protection against the harsh Arctic weather. Igloos have been used by the Inuit people for centuries as temporary dwellings during hunting trips or as semi-permanent winter homes.
It’s worth noting that the term “igloo” is commonly used in English to refer specifically to the snow shelters built by the Inuit, although in Inuktitut, it has a broader meaning and can refer to any type of house or building. Wordle Bot Analysis After I complete a Wordle I always head over to check in with Wordle Bot to see how I scored, both in terms of each individual guess and whether or not I outsmarted the Bot. This was a great set of guesses on my part! Adios got me down to just 10 remaining words.
It’s a good opener, but it was exceptionally lucky today. I didn’t know I only had 10 words left, but I knew I was getting close. Still, I opted for a word that used the letters I already had.
Ingot was almost perfect, slashing the remaining words down to just one: igloo for the win! Today’s Score: I get 1 point for guessing in three and another for beating the Bot who got his in 4, for a grand total of 2 points! Huzzah! Play Competitive Wordle Against Me!
