The Wordle answer for today, 4th June 2024 is, as you might have expected, another five-word challenge for you to tackle.

For the uninitiated, the aim of Wordle is to work out a daily five-letter word within six guesses. The fewer the guesses, the better - and if you fail to guess it at all, you'll break your streak.

The latter is why working out today's Wordle answer is such a priority, as players pride themselves on keeping their streak going. So why gamble on a risky final guess when you can learn a few clues and, failing that, get the definitive answer? This page can help with that.

Once you have today's word, learn more about Wordle and how the New York Times became interested in games in this interview with Jonathan Knight, Head of Games for the NYTimes. In keeping with the word theme, we've also discussed why The NYTimes Mini Crossword is a reliable joy.

Clues for today's Wordle answer

Instead of going straight to the answer, you might only need a few hints to get you over the line:

  • The word has three consonants in it.
  • Today's word repeats one letter.
  • This word starts with 'G'.
  • The word represents the kind of treatment Link's horses might have in the the many stables in Hyrule.

Still not sure? Read on for the answer.

Wordle answer for word 1081 on 4th June 2024

Even with the above clues, still not sure and want to keep that streak going?

The Wordle answer today is GROOM.

Since we're still early in the week and I'm feeling energetic, I started playing Wordle today with 'POWER'. I didn't land a single letter, so I changed my strategy and went with 'GREAT'. Feeling positive rewarded me with the two initial letters. My third guess was 'GRAPE' but I ran out of luck, getting nothing from it. It was after trying 'GROAN' that I got the first vowel and from there I went with 'GROOM'.

Now you have the answer, do not spoil it for others! Remember, you can share your results spoiler-free in the form of a grid.

Of course, no one has to know you came to this page to work it out. Maybe put in two or three fake guesses first to throw them off the scent, perhaps?

Today's Wordle etymology

As a noun related to a man about to get married, etymologically 'GROOM' is connected to the word 'GROME', used in surnames, around the 12th century. This expression was used to indicate a boy or the male child. On the other hand, to specify the one who takes care of horses in stables, 'GROOM' is connected to the expression 'HORSE-GROOM' from the 1660s.

The meaning of tending or caring for something comes from 1809 and has possibly originated the use of the verb 'GROOM' related to taking care of animals.

What to play after Wordle

With your daily Wordle completed, the question is - what shall you play now?

You can, of course, try out the other word-based games offered by the New York Times, like Spelling Bee, the Mini Crossword and Letter Boxed. You can also take a crack at Connections, the daily Sudokus and Tiles - a rather additive motif matching game.

NYT games

There’s also a range of games which have put a twist on the Wordle formula. Squaredle challenges you to find a series of words by connecting letters in a four by four grid. Meanwhile Dordle, Quorodly, Octordly and Sedecordle all keep to the standard Wordle, while increasing the number of words you have to find. The challenge comes in how your guesses count for all of the words, so you need to decide whether you’re going to focus on a specific word or try to solve multiple words at the same time. Thankfully, the number of guesses you’re given increases alongside the amount of words you’re expected to solve.

If you want a break from spelling though, try GeoGuessr. Here you’ll be given a picture of somewhere, anywhere, in the world and have to place a marker on where you think that location is. There’s even an Old School RuneScape version.

Hope you enjoyed playing Wordle today!
