Are you not sure how the clues you have uncovered will help with today’s Wordle? Knowing that today’s word contains the letters “IO” narrows down the possibilities, but it might not bring any common words to mind. The good news is that Wordle isn’t going to throw any words that are obscure or wouldn’t be found normally. With a proper word list, you can narrow down the possibilities and guess the word to maintain your streak.

If you are still struggling even with the list, there are tips that can help you narrow down the word and can be used in the future.

What five letter words have IO in them?

There are 13 common words that have the letters “IO” in them, which are:

  • Adios
  • Axiom
  • Biome
  • Biota
  • Griot
  • Idiom
  • Idiot
  • Kiosk
  • Pious
  • Prior
  • Scion
  • Union
  • Viola

To narrow down the list of words, there are a few tips you can try.

  • Don’t go down the list alphabetically. While it’s tempting because there aren’t too many words on the list, you could waste valuable chances. Rather than start with “Adios” and work your way down, jump around to try “Idiom” or “Kiosk” to see what clues you get.
  • Eliminate words whose clues you know are incorrect. For example, if you pick a word like “Griot” and you find that the word doesn’t have a “G”, “R”, or “T”, other words with those letters aren’t going to be correct. You can take them off your list and narrow down the possibilities even further.
  • Don’t discount words with duplicate letters. While that might be a gut reaction, this list has a few words with duplicate letters (two “K”s). Being too quick to eliminate words such as “Union” could lock you out of today’s Wordle. If you have enough tries, it’s not bad to try one of the duplicate letter words to see how it might turn out.
  • Save your last two tries for more focused guesses. Spend the first four getting as many hints as you can, then narrow down the possibilities based on the information.

If you can utilize the list and narrow down the possibilities, you should not struggle to find today’s Wordle and keep your daily streak.
