Solving 8th June’s Wordle #354

An excellent first word for every day should be something that would provide maximum information. One such word is ‘ADIEU,’ Adieu gives you four out of five vowels, and there are seldom words without a vowel. 

The next step involves trying to guess the word based on the first word. Let’s assume it is ‘ADIEU’ for Wordle #354. In that case, we get A and I as the incorrectly positioned letters. 

Now, if you have ‘Hard Mode’ enabled, you’d have to ensure the next word includes the letters A and I. If not, you can go with ‘CORNY,’ which eliminates certain letters and checks for the last vowel.

In the case of today’s wordle, A and I are the two vowels. These can be used separately or together to form the sounds ‘AI’ or ‘IA.’ If you have used ‘ADIEU’ as the first word, it seems pretty obvious A isn’t the first letter. 

It only makes sense to have the letters A & I in the 2nd & 3rd or 3rd & 4th position using the sounds ‘AI’ or ‘IA.’ Now, the 1st & 2nd letter or 4th & 5th letter has to be a combined sound of two letters in our case ‘TR.’

With TR as the first two letters and the sound ‘AI,’ the first word to mind is ‘TRAIT.’ 

Wordle #354 Solution: TRAIT

The word trait is a distinguishable quality or characteristic. A trait defines a person or a thing and separates it from the rest.
