Today's Wordle answer July 5

Today's Wordle answer is: FIELD.

Field is one of those words that has way more versatility than you realise. As a noun alone it can refer to an open area of land, a branch of academic study, or the extent of the space you survey. It can also be used as a verb, in which case it means to deal with a task, or to take up a particular position when playing sports. Or it can be an adjective, describing a natural as opposed to a man-made environment (field experiments, anyone?). Wow, that's a lot of fields! Why not take some time to ponder its many meanings, and be sure to keep its identity as the solution to today's Wordle to yourself until tomorrow.

I was honestly surprised that this common five-letter word hadn't come up as the Wordle solution before this point.
