July 2nd Wordle Answer | Wordle Answer (July 2): Puzzle 378 Hints, Clues, and Solution. Once you’ve seen today’s Wordle answer for July 2, you’ll want to spread your wings and fly away. But we’ve popped back in to check everything’s correct and update our hints.
The word used in Puzzle 378 is a very naughty one and is sure to trip up a lot of players. Not only does it have a repeated vowel in an unusual position, but the animal it actually refers to isn’t that common either. It’s the perfect storm of tough letters and uncommon word that make this a particularly difficult Wordle.
While it shares a couple of letters with common starting words like ‘crate’, it’s easy to get lulled into a false sense of security when you see a couple of orange letters and waste the rest of your guesses trying to fit them in. Once you start seeing some green letters however, you’re on the right track.
How To Play Wordle
Although there are many Wordle clones and copycats out there, the original is on the New York Times Games site. The NYT purchased Wordle back in February, and this is the version that will be in this article. Others may have different answers and rules. But for those wanting to play the original, here’s how to play:
Head to the site and choose a starting Wordle word. It should be five letters long and a real English word. Type this word into the site and press enter; this will cause the letters to change colors. These colors will give players some clues as to the real answer.
- Green letters = correct and in the right place in the word
- Yellow letters = correct but in the wrong place in the word
- Gray letters = incorrect and won’t appear in the answer
Players have a total of six tries to get to the answer of the day with these hints. Each additional guess will also have the letters change color to give even more clues. While there are loads of different strategies for winning Wordle, players will need to play a few rounds to figure out their personal favorite strategies to figuring out the word of the day. But since there is only one puzzle a day, players will have to wait until midnight local time to get a new one.

Today’s Wordle Answer July 2
The Wordle answer today is egret.
Egrets are types of herons with similar long necks and legs for wading in water and catching fish. While you might not have heard of them, they’re actually quite common throughout most of the world.
Funnily enough, the etymology of the word egret is closely related to the more well-known species name, heron. While egret arrived in English from French in the 1300s, it most likely came into French from the same Germanic root that eventually gave English the word heron.
In linguistics closely related words like this are said to be “cognate” with each other, since they have such a close relationship.
