For most Wordle fans, it becomes easy to guess the answer to the daily challenge after you adopt a strategy. But strategies don’t work the same way every day, and players may often find themselves stuck after a couple of guesses. Maybe you even found one or two letters, but you have no idea where to go next or what the word might be.

If the letters you know are a “G” followed by an “H,” check out the list below.

Knowing where the “GH” is helps a lot when it comes to narrowing down your options—and what to do next. If they are the first two letters or the third and fourth letters, it is likely that there will be exactly one vowel and the letter “T” will appear at least once. Make sure you include that in your next guesses. If they are at the end of the word, there is a higher chance that the word has two vowels, so you can try to focus on that if you want.
