Today's word is an adverb of comparison that qualifies two things as happening in the same manner, form, or degree. It is also an adjective that describes people, things, or events that are extremely similar without being identical. Also, there are three vowels in this word: "A," "I," and "E," as the first, third, and fifth letters, respectively. If you're the kind of player to use vowel-heavy starting words like adieu or audio, you'd totally knock today's puzzle out of the park.

We don't want to give too much away for the sake of players who like to work for their win, so those are all the hints we'll supply for today's puzzle. If you don't mind the spoiler, however, you'll find the answer below the next image.

Unlike yesterday's puzzle, which only took us three attempts, we solved today's puzzle in six attempts. We started guessing with the word grief, then followed up with the words shire, juice, and white before arriving at the answer, which was frustrating because we already had two correct letters down pat from the second guess. Still, we're comforted that we solved the puzzle in time to preserve our streak and provide you with these pointers. WordleBot said it would have solved the puzzle in four guesses, but we hope you crush it in much fewer tries.
