I've always been too honest and the five words above? Never really used them under any circumstances during my lifetime nor even heard of them. But there they were staring at me in the face when trying to solve, these past few months, New York Times' WORDLE puzzles. Guessed the meaning of four words but one freaked me out totally.
You go ahead if you care, to find the meaning of each word.

Play Wordle every morning too.
I have never heard of it.
Seems to be like a cross word puzzle.
I play this daily - from NY Times.
Two days ago I did the word TOUGH in two steps.
Got lucky as my starter word had 4 correct letters in correct positions.
My wife and I challenge daily on this . Sometimes she wins, sometimes I win.
Mostly draw- same number of steps.
I do mine after work - so have not touched today's puzzle yet.
I didn't try.
Just googled a bit about Wordle
Seems I need a bit more training before I can play
Will try it in my free time. lol.
I'm bad at games.
I'm out of words!
Yes, I try to do it everyday.
Thank you all for comments.

Strange new words to me too. Mixing for fun - I asked ChatGPT to form a sentence with these words, and this is what it spewed out:
"As she lay under the cozy duvet in the shade of the arbor, her credo was to flail her arms with delight while enjoying a crisp glass of Chardonnay."
So, a new connection - is Chardonnay a product of 'chards'?
Google is silent on that matter, so I guess Chat GPT is trying to pull a fast one on us.
My first attempt at Wordle.
And you got it on the 4th word.
Congratulations my friend.
Oh, flail, duvet and credo, yes, but definitely not chard and arbor!
There used to be complaints from puzzle enthusiasts about WORDLE using unfamiliar words.
Today's word [24March2023] is another one.
Honestly, when I looked up the meaning... gosh!!!
Only for certain experts to use. Ha, ha!
That’s why we play 💕
Cheryl Hanson yes. Thank you.
There was one word that appeared some time back and still keeps me wondering.
It's not a stand-alone word!
I suggest more reading time.
Dave Smith, surely.
Yes, I got stuck with CHARD too.
CHARD is a kind of vegetable, according to Google.
So, with the "crisp glass of Chardonnay,"
CHATGPT is correct after all?
I believe it means to place a body in the ground. As in funeral?
yes but always thought of it as a prefix which means 'among' or 'between'. I guess NY Times folks know best. Thanks again.
Cheryl Hanson, now I remember, "The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interrèd with their bones..." Nothing like a positive chat. Appreciate. 🙏
You are correct. And disinterred is when they are removed.
It is a stand alone word. But not commonly used.
how strange , I do wordle every day and the two above haven’t been answers in any of them 🤔
Eun Watson, hi! Thanks for the interest. Here's the connection I just found. https://word-finder.mobi/is-inter-valid-wordle-word

Barbara Davis Parrish,
I'm aware now.
Read more British writings.
Barbara Davis Parrish, yes I do. Thanks for advice.
I should just mention here, that the words encountered are hardly used in Singapore, where I come from and must thank readers from other countries, especially the US and the UK for replying.
The response to READ MORE is truly commendable and have sent these comments to my grandchildren.
Thank you all.
Your blog is read far and wide.
I am amused that you think those are low frequency words. Except for two, maybe three I use them all the time.
Lynette Deon D'Addario hi, that's interesting. I guess the overall environment that we live in also plays a part in how a word is used. Thanks for the feedback Lynette.

Cheryl, INTER is a stand alone word! As in: We will INTER the body in the crypt located in the mausoleum.
Becky Farringer Heckert yes. You are absolutely right. I overlooked it. Thanks for the explanation.

Hi Wendy, that's really great! Keep on Wordling! 🙂
I'm waiting for the day that my starter word is THE WORD.....hasn't happened yet. It always surprises me when it does for others. WOW!!
Hi Ruth, thanks for connecting. Yes, for me that'll be like a million dollar lottery win! I'm waiting for it to happen too. 🙂
THANKS TO THE ABOVE WHO LIKE MY COMMENT ON WORDLE WORDS.
