What is the Word answer today? Meaning of daily word 276 for Tuesday 22 March and how to play the game


Word has fully embedded itself into people’s morning rituals (or for those who are extra keen, it has become a 12.01am tradition).

The game remains as popular as ever after blowing up earlier this year, and is still free to play on the New York Times website, at least for now.

Today’s Word is the 276th edition (for yesterday’s answer, click here). If you haven’t attempted it yet and don’t want to know the answer, look away now.

What is Wordle?

Wordle is a simple word game that gives players six attempts to guess a five-letter word each day. There is a new word every day, and the word is the same for everyone.

The game now has millions of players, and has become instantly recognizable on social media, with people sharing their scores in the form of little green, yellow and white (or black if you’re playing on dark mode) squares.

OK, this is your final chance to avoid spoilers, so if you don’t want to know the answer yet, leave this page immediately. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

The Wordle 276 answer for Tuesday 22 March is… SLOSH.

the Cambridge Dictionary defines slosh as a verb that refers to liquid, meaning: “To move around noisily in the bottom of a container, or to cause liquid to move around in this way by making rough movements.”

Some players complained today’s Word was not even a real word, while others found it a satisfying answer.

However many attempts it took, we can all agree it is definitely the most onomatopoeic word yet.

How do I play Wordle?

You can play Wordle online, either on a computer or mobile device, right here.

Start by inputting a five-letter word and hitting enter.

The letters will then either turn green, yellow or stay blank.

Here’s what those colors mean:

  • Green – you have put the right letter in the right spot
  • Yellow – the letter is in the word, but in a different spot
  • Blank – the letter is not in the word

You can use your previous guesses to inform you next guess, and attempt to guess the word within six attempts.

Once you have finished the game will give you the option to share your score on social media.

Are there any tips for winning?

Everyone has their own strategies, but there are a few golden rules worth remembering if you want the best chance of winning.

First, you want to start with words that contain a lot of common letters. Many players like to use a lot of vowels early, as well as common consonants like R, S and T.

Various experts, from linguistics professors to mathematicians and computer scientists, have weighed in on what the best starting word is.

A computer scientist who goes by the name of crvlwalnek on TikTok looked into Wordle’s source file to analyze the frequency of each letter in winning answers, and found the best starting word was “later”.

Other starters people have vouchers for include:

  • anger
  • stare
  • Arise
  • Arose
  • Learn
  • soare
  • Samey

Another good tip is not to use duplicate letters early on. For example, starting with a word like “awake” is not optimal, as it uses two As.

Sometimes you may want to ignore your previous guesses to eliminate some letters. However, Wordle also has a “hard mode” which stops you from doing this. You can access this by hitting the settings icon in the top right.

Finally, it is important to think about common conventions when guessing words. For example, there are lots of words that end in -ICK or start with an SH-. Go through the alphabet while making your guesses and see what works phonetically, and you’ll be rewarded with those satisfying green squares.
