The weekend is finally here, and what better way to start than with a Wordle puzzle for August 27th? I, for one, like it when my brain stays active even when the rest of my body is resting after a long work week. That’s the advantage of puzzle games like Wordle! You can do small daily tasks for yourself, no matter how hard the previous day was.
Wordle has maintained its popularity ever since it went viral at the start of the pandemic, and for good reason. Along with the aforementioned benefits as a puzzle game, it also taught many of us a number of new words. While you may not be dropping the word “heron” anytime soon, it’s safe to say that we’ve all discovered a fun new word to enter our everyday lexicon!
So, if you’re ready to take on Wordle’s August 27th challenge, keep reading for our tips for solving the puzzle! We’ll show the final answer down below, just in case you need it.
Wordle tips for Friday, August 27
Today’s Wordle is an adjective meaning “ill-mannered” or “impolite”. This is a common word used to describe people who act mean or show disrespect (often for no reason). Think about how you would describe the person who bumped into the line in front of you or interrupted you in the middle of a conversation.
It is also important to note that this word is a relative adjective. Comparative adjectives are used to compare two people or things. This affects the spelling of the word – think “fast” instead of “faster” or “strong” instead of “stronger”. Combine this with the definition and you can determine the correct Wordle shape!
As a final hint, the August 27 Wordle starts with “R“and ends”R“. As you can see, there is a repeated letter in this word (this is where the comparative adjective comes into play!). You will also have to contend with two vowels; however, one of them is the most commonly used vowel in English, so you should be able to figure it out with most initial guesses. The other one is less common, so try guessing words similar to “ADIEU” or “BOULE” to rule out as many vowels as possible at once!
What is Wordle’s answer today? (Friday, 27 August)
The answer to today’s Wordle puzzle is:RUDER“.
“Ruder” is a bit harder for Wordle, isn’t it? The comparative form of the adjective makes it difficult to think about this particular spelling, as many will have the base word “rough” in mind before “rough”. On what assumption did you finally solve the puzzle? Are you confused by this spelling? Let us know in the comments below!
