I’m liking the NYTimes Wordle a lot more than the original. I’m still undefeated in both English and Spanish but at least now words aren’t super easy. Yesterday, I actually had to make an effort.
Spanish almost defeated me a couple of days ago with the word “litio” (lithium) but I still won in the last-ditch effort.
In Russian I already lost several times because I can’t figure out the principle behind the choice of word forms and parts of speech. Some adverbs are allowed but some aren’t. The same for diminutives. Of course. We are Russian-speakers. The rules aren’t for us. We’ll do what the little toe on our left foot wants. I shouldn’t complain. I’m like that, too. I’m yet to meet a rule I didn’t immediately try to break.
