Today’s Wordle Answer May 25th
The Wordle answer today is vouch.
The word vouch is a fun example of how words with a very specific meaning can come to have a metaphorical definition that overtakes the original understanding.
In Middle English, vouch first referred to the act of calling someone to court to show they had the right to something.
However, as time passed, because of that association it colloquially came to be used to mean that you could prove, or believed you could prove, the validity of something or someone outside of that legal context.
So by saying that you vouch for something, what you’re really saying is that you think it could back up what it’s promising in court.
