Scholardle is a variant of the popular word-guessing game Wordle. Similar to Wordle, players in Scholardle are challenged to guess a five-letter word within six tries daily. However, the twist in Scholardle is that each word belongs to a list of scholarly words derived from Writefull's database of scientific texts.
The objective of Scholardle is to guess the scholarly word of the day using the given number of attempts. The words used in Scholardle are selected from Writefull's database, which consists of published, peer-reviewed journal articles from various academic disciplines. Additionally, words from the Academic Word List (AWL) by Coxhead are included in the game. The resulting list of scholarly words has been manually curated to ensure relevance and suitability for a scholarly audience across different fields of study.
Scholardle adds an extra level of challenge compared to Wordle, as the chosen words are less common and specific to academic contexts. This makes it particularly appealing to researchers and those who enjoy intellectual challenges.
The game itself is built upon the open-source version of the original Wordle, providing a familiar and accessible interface for players to enjoy the game. By engaging with Scholardle, players can expand their vocabulary, test their knowledge of scholarly terms, and have fun in a scholarly word-guessing adventure.
Try your hand at Scholardle and see how well you can navigate the world of academic words!
