Today's solution has only one vowel, but if you manage to hit the right combination of letters with your first or second guess, there's a good chance you'll figure it out quickly — assuming you've heard this word before, otherwise, you may not even realize it's an option to guess. The first letter is C, and the word rhymes with hard. If you need a better hint, hard is not only a word that rhymes with the answer, but it's also part of the solution.

Are you feeling more confused than ever? The solution to Wordle #578 on January 18, 2023, is chard. The plant is a type of beet, which explains the bright purple stalks; it tastes horribly bitter when raw, but isn't too terrible when blanched. According to Eytmonline, the word originates from France where it was once compared to a thistle, though it has also historically been known as a plant similar to artichoke — though, of course, it's distinctly different.
