There are quite a lot of unusual combinations and patterns on the list above, so, unless you get lucky, you are probably looking at a victory by elimination. Check all the clues you already found on your own first, especially the letters that came out green so you can avoid using them again, and compare them with the words on the list.

Yellow letters should also help, because at this point, it means that letter could be in one of two places in the word.

After that, look at all the possible combinations for the clues you have. You can test the most common letters that were not tested yet, from “A” to “M” or “Y,” or prioritize the ones that appear more frequently among the possible words for you—which can be different from the overall list.

Also, keep in mind that some letters might be repeated, and that you should avoid some of those “S” endings, because Wordle will never pick a plural form as the word of the day.

If you’re still unsure and don’t want to wait until Wordle resets at midnight local time, you can always look up the answer to today’s puzzle (which we update around 12am CT).
