So you’ve been enjoying Wordle for a while and getting better at it each day. But you wish to have an edge over your friends and get a potential “best word” or a list of best words to begin with. Look no further because this article will help you know just that. Here is a list of 5-letter words having the most vowels to help you in improving your score on Wordle.
The mathematics of vowels in Wordle
Most conversations in Wordle discussion forums and spaces echo the same feeling – they start with a word that has more than one vowel. This is a topic that needs to be talking about more. Whether you’re a novice or a veteran, generally, people start with words that have at least one vowel when playing. In Wordle, there is a tendency to repeat vowels as words like “COLOR”, “BLOOM”, and more have a propensity to come out of your brain and onto the screen.
Strategically, vowel-packed words do make some of the best first words. It is the case due to the general rule of English as there are a limited number of words without vowels. This list will narrow down even further if 5-letter words are considered. Josh Wardle, the creator of the game, has condensed the scope of vowel-free words by banishing rare words from the list of 2,135 eligible words. It leaves you with a few vowel-free words like “GYPSY” or “CRYPT”.
With that said, the mathematics of Vowel-stuffing your first guess will be all about facilitating the process of elimination. If you start the game with a word like “ADIEU”, you’ve submitted four of the five vowels for colored feedback from the game. The odds of having at least one of those vowels returning with a yellow/green feedback will be higher than receiving positive feedback for another vowel-packed word such as “QUEUE”. The trick would be to start with vowels that are inevitably present in most eligible words and to incorporate as much variety as possible.
