Wordle of The Day Hints & Answer for Word 517: November 18, 2022

Wordle hints for your Friday fun.

Look at that: it’s another Friday Wordle of the day! And we’ve got even more Wordle hints for this fine autumn (or is it winter?) day of November 18, 2022. That leads us all the way to puzzle #517. Really, though, I know what you’re here for, so let’s discuss those aforementioned hints. If you’re here having issues guessing the correct word, we’re also here to help as usual. Whether you just need a few hints to get you on the right track or you’re simply looking for the answer as a means of keeping your score intact, we’re here to help.

We’re going to give some hints first before sharing the answer. If you just want said answer, scroll to the very bottom of the article. It’s right there in bold text below the aforementioned “SPOILER WARNING.” For those of you who just want a tiny nudge in the right direction, the next section includes both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, a very broad category of what it could be, etc.) followed by some more specific clues. The latter should all but tell you what the word is.

Note: It seems the New York Times recently made some changes to the rules of Wordle going forward! Words ending in things like “ES” should be out of the picture, for one, among a few other tweaks. You should probably keep that in mind as you play along!

Today’s Wordle Word Hints of the Day: #517

In this section, we try to keep things vague and only point you in the right direction. Hints at this stage will be more about the meaning of the word, rather than any specific letters that are used in the word itself. We also won’t use other methods like “rhymes with,” “sounds similar to,” and the like. More specific hints are included just after that — finally followed by the full solution after a Wordle spoiler warning. Figured we’d just warn you one last time!

Easy Hints

These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!

  • Is a noun.
  • Describes an arcane form of communication.

Even with those two hints, there are still plenty more possibilities to choose from. We’ll try to narrow things down in the next section!

More Specific Hints

You still absolutely get credit (and keep that streak going) if you need these beefier hints. Let’s narrow it down and get a bit more specific.

  • Another word for sigil or rune.
  • A type of written letter or writing found on ancient stone tablets or in ruins.

Still drawing a blank? Think about it some more or scroll down for the final answer reveal.
