Today’s Wordle hint and answer on Monday 13th May for 1059


The week has just started and with it a new round of finding out the Wordle answer for today, 13th May 2024.

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:

  • Today’s word has two vowels in it.
  • There are no repeating letters.
  • This word starts with ‘C’.
  • This word is the name of the aromatic seeds used as a cooking ingredient in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Still not sure? Read on for the answer.

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

The Wordle answer today is CUMIN.

Initially, I tried the word ‘MIMIC’. Not a bad start, but I couldn’t think of a word whose third and fourth letters were ‘MI’. The third word I guessed was ‘CAKES’. It took just another try to find ‘CUMIN’ since there aren’t many words starting with ‘C’ and ‘MI’ in the middle.

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

When it comes to the origin of the word ‘CUMIN’, it traces back to a considerable number of exchanges between languages. The Old English term ‘cymen’ and Old French ‘cummin’ gave origin to ‘comyn’ in Middle English. Those two originated from the Latin word ‘cuminum’.

Today, ‘CUMIN’ designates a spice made out of seeds of a plant in the carrot family. This is a very specific plant which is found in some regions such as Egypt.

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!
