This Wordle clue doesn’t give you that much choice due to the small amount words that have this very specific letter placement. Only 15 five-letter words exist that have “A” and “D” as the second and third letters.

Here are some tips to help you get through this very specific clue. First, check if the word has either a double “D” or ends with “Y” as it will help reduce the list of words in the list. If either of those two doesn’t work, the next tip I can give is that don’t bother with uncommon letters. This includes letters like “U”, “Z”, “X”, etc. Also, you’re more likely to see the letter “E” so try to check if that letter is part of the solution.

What makes clues like these overwhelming is that it’s the lack of choice you have to help solve the answer. And depending on who you are, this would lead to you wasting your moves just so you can find other letters that may be part of the solution.

So whether you need some serious help with this puzzle, or you just want a refresher, here is the full list of five-letter words with “A” and “D” as the second and third letters, in alphabetical order.
