Today’s Wordle #657 Hints, Clues And Answer For Friday, April 7th

It’s Wordle Friday, folks! TGIF!

What this means—for those of you who play Competitive Wordle with me—is 2XP and -2XP depending on how you do. If you do well and earn some points, you get double. If you do poorly and lose points, you lose double the points!

I like to think you’re reading that in the voice of a commercial or sports announcer, with an over-the-top, super-enthusiastic tone. DOUBLE THE POINTS, HELL YEAH!!!

And the crowd goes wild.

Alright, enough preamble! Let’s see how we all did!

How To Solve Today’s Wordle

The Hint: The place where something occurs or is located.

The Clue: This word has more consonants than vowels.

The Answer:




I got this word surprisingly quickly today, though still in three tries. My opening guess wasn’t even very good at all. Trail left me with 169 remaining possibilities. Fortunately, slope dropped that number like a mountainside of beginner snowboarders, leaving me with just three to choose from.

I admit, I didn’t realize there were three at this point. In fact, I could only think of two: locus and lousy. Bolus was the third, but it never crossed my mind. I honestly didn’t know which of the two words to choose, but I thought “Well, locus means the specific location, and I’d feel doubly lousy if I guessed that word and it was wrong, so I’ll go with my gut.” Turns out, that was the answer! Huzzah!

That’s 1 point for guessing in three and zero for tying Wordle Bot (who went with slate / lousy / locus which seems oddly lucky) doubled because it’s 2XP Friday for a grand total of 2. Not bad!

Today’s Wordle Etymology (Via ChatGPT)

The word “locus” comes from Latin, where it means “place” or “location”. It is derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *legh-, which also gave rise to words such as “lieu” in French, “leik” in Old Norse, and “lie” in English.

In its original Latin form, “locus” was used to refer to a specific physical location or place, but it has also taken on broader meanings in different contexts, such as in mathematics and biology where it can refer to a set of points or a specific position in a genetic sequence.
