Wordle Letter Frequency Cribs

Wordle Letter Frequency Table

If you're used to solving cryptic puzzles, or deciphering texts using crypt-analytical cribs, it can be useful to know the relative frequency of letters in the distribution of words. Wordle has a built-in list of 5-letter words. That list isn't the same as all of the five letter words in the dictionary, or even only the common ones. Perfectly common words like 'tudor' are omitted. This gist contains a few useful tables that are worth familiarizing yourself with if you want to solve wordle puzzles logically.
