Today's Wordle answer: what is the Wordle word for 12 Jun?

Tricky one, this word. It may seem simple, but there are a couple of traps you can fall into which can easily use up all your guesses. If you want to lay bare the mystery, check out the Wordle solution below.

Today's Wordle answer is: FLOAT.

Those who tried "Gloat" and/or "Bloat", my condolences. Yes, today's Wordle answer is "Float", which is the opposite of "Sink". If you place something light - let's say a leaf - on a surface of still water, then it will float. Meaning it will stay on the water's surface, rather than sinking down through it, as something heavy like a stone would do.

Normally I'm a big proponent of the saying: "whatever floats your boat". But that open understanding and lack of judgement comes to an end if we see that you've used this knowledge of today's Wordle answer just to spoil the fun of other players by ruining their games. Don't sink to that level. Float above it!
