Today’s Wordle #793 Hints, Clues And Answer For Monday, August 21st

Monday hath returned, and off we go—back to work, back to our jobs and our responsibilities. Back to the daily grind. The humdrum. The slog. Whatever you want to call it. Or maybe it’s none of those things. Maybe you love your work. Maybe your job doesn’t even feel like work because you love it so much.

That’s when you’re living the dream, which I suppose is how I think about my job except for when I get knocked down with a bade case of writer’s block (or just pure laziness, which is also a thing we writerly types have to sometimes reckon with).

In any case, sometimes to get ye olde juices flowing, solving some word puzzles is just the thing. So let’s do this Wordle!

How To Solve Today’s Wordle

The Hint: A popular spot for vacationing.

Wordle Bot Analysis

After each Wordle I solve I head over to the Wordle Bot homepage to see how my guessing game was.

Today, I did pretty good and got pretty lucky. Spare left me with two correct letters (one in green, one in yellow) and only 20 words remaining. Meaty slashed that number down to just two. I’ll be honest, at the time I could only think of beach so that’s what I went with and, lucky for me, that was the Wordle! Huzzah!

Today’s Score

I get 1 point for guessing in three, but sadly I tied Wordle Bot today so zero points for the tie. Still, a point is a point is a point, as they say. Huzzah again!

Today’s Wordle Etymology

The word “beach” has a rather complex etymology. It comes from the Middle English word “bēche” or “beche,” which in turn derives from Old English “bæce.” The exact origins of the Old English term are not entirely clear, but it’s thought to be related to Old Norse “bakki,” which means “riverbank” or “slope.”

Can you solve today’s phrase?

The connection between “bakki” and “bæce” likely stems from the idea of a sloping, gently inclining area leading to a body of water, whether a river, a lake, or the sea. Over time, as languages evolve and cultures interact, words tend to change in form and meaning. The word “beach” gradually evolved to refer more specifically to the sandy, shore-like areas along the coast where land meets the sea.

It’s worth noting that the evolution of words often involves a blend of linguistic influences, historical developments, and cultural interactions, making the exact origins of some words more challenging to pinpoint with certainty.
