Today’s Wordle hint and answer on Monday 19th February for 975

Start your Monday off right by getting Wordle’s answer for today, February 19.

For the uninitiated, the goal of Wordle is to solve a daily five-letter word with six puzzles. The less guessing the better, and if you can’t guess anything, you’ll break your streak.

The latter is why finding today’s Wordle answer is a priority, as players pride themselves on maintaining their streak. So why go for a risky final guess when you can learn a few clues and otherwise get the definitive answer? This page can help with that.

Once you have the floor today, learn more about Wordle and how the New York Times became interested in games in this interview with Jonathan Knight, NYTimes games director. In keeping with the theme of words, we also discuss why the NYTimes Mini Crossword Puzzle is a reliable delight.

Clues for today’s Wordle answer

Instead of jumping straight to the answer, you may just need a few tips to get you over the line:

  • There are no repeated letters.
  • This word starts with ‘P’.
  • There are two vowels in today’s Wordle and one is the last letter.
  • This is something you’ll want to keep as small as possible if you want to save money.

Wordle’s response for word 974 on February 18, 2024

Even with the clues above, are you still unsure and want to keep that streak going?

Wordle’s answer today is PRICE.

My brain just couldn’t understand today’s Wordle, despite it being a very common word. All I got were orange letters when trying words like ‘RANTS’ and ‘DIVER’, and finally ‘BLAK’. That turned out to be an appropriate word to end with, as I lost my streak.

Now you have the answer, don’t tell others! Remember, you can share your spoiler-free results in grid form.

Of course, no one has to know that you came to this page to solve it. Maybe make two or three false guesses first to throw them off, perhaps?

The current etymology of Wordle

Like many modern words, ‘PRICE’ has its origins in Latin, and ‘PRETIUM’ means “value, price, money spent, salary or reward.” It then evolved into ‘PRIS’ and ‘PREIS’ in French, before Middle English adopted it with the same meaning. The word ‘AWARD’ also has its origins from the same word, but it acquired its own meaning in the late 16th century.

What to play after Wordle

Once you’ve completed your daily Wordle, the question is: what will you play next?

Of course, you can try other word games offered by the New York Times, such as Spelling Bee, Mini Crossword, and Letter Boxed. You can also try Connections, daily Sudokus, and Tiles, a fairly additive pattern matching game.

NYT games

There are also a variety of games that have put a twist on Wordle’s formula. Squaredle challenges you to find a series of words by connecting letters on a four-by-four grid. Meanwhile, Dordle, Quorodly, Octordly, and Sedecordle keep the standard Wordle, while increasing the number of words you have to find. The challenge lies in how your guesses count for all the words, so you must decide whether you will focus on a specific word or try to solve several words at the same time. Fortunately, the number of guesses you receive increases along with the number of words you are expected to solve.

However, if you want a break from spelling, try GeoGuessr. Here you will be given an image of some place, anywhere in the world and you will have to place a marker where you think that location is. There’s even an old-school RuneScape version.

I hope you enjoyed playing Wordle today!
