The Russian Wordle almost tripped me up with the word “топик” (topic) which is not a real word. N says it’s a diminutive of the English word “top” and means a fitted T-shirt. This is very unfair because the Russian Wordle doesn’t allow diminutives or even plurals of words. “Topic” is an ugly calque. Shame on you, Russian Wordlesters.
