Contexto 610 answer: May 20 hints

Contexto is always a tricky word game to solve, but these hints will make it easier for you to find the solution.

Contexto is one of the nerdiest word games out there. The game tasks you with finding the word of the day by showing how close other words you guess are to it. This is measured by analyzing thousands of texts to find similarities between words.

How to play Contexto

You play Contexto by typing a word into the text box—anything that comes to mind. When you submit your guess, it will appear under the text box with a number next to it and a bar that can be red, yellow, or green. The lower the number of the word you guessed is, the more it’s related to today’s Contexto solution. The higher it is, the worse your guess is.

That’s why if you make a good guess, shown by a low number and a green color bar, you should keep guessing similar words—for example, if “internet” is green, I would try “connection” or “computer.”

Conversely, if it’s a high number and red, try something totally different. Using the same example, if “internet” was red, I would try “dog” or “eyes.”

Contexto 610 hints (May 20)

The solution to the May 20 puzzle, Contexto 610, is related to academia. Landing a first word proved quite tricky here: My best early guess was “human” which was still hopelessly off. It wasn’t until I hit “doctor” and “medicine” that I began to piece together today’s puzzle.

I kept at it with medical-specific terms like “hospital,” but found I was getting no closer to the solution. I changed up the tactic and went for other jobs and fields, and that’s when I landed on “college,” “teacher,” and “university”—today’s word has something to do with studying and teaching more than just learning

If you’re still struggling, ask this: What’s the one thing a college lecture can’t go without?

Contexto 610 answer (May 20)

Today’s solution to Contexto 610 is PROFESSOR. You can get close to this answer if you guess “faculty,” “lecturer,” “university,” and “graduate.” University gets you very close but there are loads of possible related words like “campus” or “student,” so you have to think on your feet and a little higher up the chain for this one!
