Today’s Wordle hint and answer on Wednesday 8th May for 1054


Let’s start the day by figuring out the five-letter Wordle answer for today, 8th 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:

  • This word has three different vowels in it.
  • There are no repeating letters in this word.
  • The word starts with ‘P’.
  • Today’s word is the name of one of the tincts in Lords of the Fallen.

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 PIOUS.

As my first attempt in figuring out the five-letter word was to try ‘PARTY’ which didn’t necessarily help me since I only got the first letter right. My second guess was ‘PILOT’. It was after my third try when I went with ‘PIONS’ that I got what I needed to go with ‘PIOUS’ afterwards.

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

There is still some discussion of whether today’s word ‘PIOUS’ originated from the Latin words ‘pius’ that qualified someone as religious and dutiful, or ‘purus’ which indicated the state of pureness.

The word relates to a person’s belief in religion and used to indicate a strong demonstration of faith. It’s fairly common to find games that employ symbolic elements from different religions as a way to create their own world. In Lords of the Fallen, you can paint your armor with the colors of those with strong faith by using the Pious tinct.

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!
