For when these two appear together.

Finding the answer to Wordle and its several alternative versions—and sharing progress on social media—has become a part of many players’ daily routines. The game will pick a new five-letter word each day, and you have a maximum of 24 hours and six tries to guess what it is. While words will always be the same for players on the same calendar day, the only clues are the letters themselves, changing colors after each guess to indicate their presence and position in the word.

Most days will be easy enough, but even the best may get stuck occasionally. Even if you have a strategy, you could find yourself with a couple of green letters and no idea where to go from there. If that is the case with “OT,” check out the list below.

Chances are, if you found this list, you found an “O” followed by a “T” in your word, which means that you probably know exactly where they are in the word as well. That will significantly narrow down your options. Some other useful tips are avoiding plural words, because they will never be the answer to the Wordle, and not repeating letters you used before. That way, you can make the most out of each word you try, in terms of information.
