Today's Wordle answer July 16

Today's Wordle answer is: ROOMY.

This one's fairly self-explanatory: a roomy room is a room with lots of room in it. Sorry, I couldn't resist the opportunity for a recursive defintion. But really, something that's roomy just has plenty of extra space for you to move around in. A roomy house doesn't have too much furniture crammed into it. You might want to wear your roomy jeans when visiting your grandma for dinner (because you know she's going to spoil you). And so on! Now that you're all clued in, be sure to keep your knowledge to yourself until tomorrow so everyone else can have a go too.

You can't exactly practice Wordle aside from playing it every day, but there are ways to improve your technique in the meantime. Check out our guide to the best Wordle starting words for pointers, or have a look at our past Wordle answers list to see every solution that's been and gone.
