The Wordle of the day arrives just in time to carry us through another Sunday. We’ve hit Jan. 22, 2023 and, as usual, we’ve got hints and the all-important answer to the latest daily puzzle. That’s Wordle #582 for those who care (and if you don’t, well, it’s not like knowing hurts anything)! Anyway, let’s start this guide with those hints you’re probably after. 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.
In case you missed it, the New York Times made some changes to the rules of Wordle in 2022 as they established a full-time editor for the game. 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: #582
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!
These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!
- Typically used as a noun. Though it can also be used as an adjective.
- Often related to pirates.
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
Here we’ve got the usual arrangement of beefier hints. Let’s narrow it down and get a bit more specific.
- Something that pirates in popular fiction often call other people — often other sailors.
- Another (if rarely used) word for friendly or sociable.
Still drawing a blank? Think about it some more or scroll down for the final answer reveal.

This reminds me that I need to get around to watching Black Sails sometime. A lot of my friends tell me it’s great, but I never seem to find the time to watch lengthy shows. Even when they’ve been out for a few years!
