Today’s Wordle Answer May 20th

The Wordle answer today is gamer.

While the most obvious definition is someone that loves playing video games, you could also use gamer as an adjective to say someone was “more game” than someone else; as in they were more willing to do something.

This reflects the dual usage of the suffix “-er” to both identify someone as belonging to a group, hobby or profession and to compare something to something else.

Interestingly, these different usages have slightly different etymologies, with the comparative adjective usage coming from middle and old English, whereas the noun usage also roots in old French and Latin.

This puzzle might be done for today, but there are plenty more fun word games out there on the internet - try these Wordle alternatives.
