Trite - Wordle 396 stumps fans with tricky challenge
Wordle fans were infuriated when the word 'trite' appeared as a recent challenge and many lost their hard earned streaks
The word 'trite' has frustrated a number of Wordle players who were unable to guess Wordle 396 and subsequently ruined their streaks.
Obscure words such as agape, pinto, gawky, and brink, have previously frustrated Wordle players who have struggled to think of these words when playing the online word puzzle game.
Like these words, on July 20, 'trite' was another Wordle challenge that stumped a number of game players who were unfamiliar with this uncommon word. Angry fans have taken to social media to complain that this challenge was too hard, and has ruined their streak completely.
"My first ever Wordle loss. After half of a year of playing this game every consecutive day and never failing I have finally let myself down. A new streak must begin," said one player.
"I even tried to eliminate possible 4th letters on my 5th try and still couldn’t get it. Goodbye 121 day streak," said another player who also failed to solve the puzzle.
"Finally got my ass after 183 correct answers Wordle 396 X/6," said another.

Others specifically complained that the word 'trite' was too niche and should not have been included as a possible answer for the Wordle challenge.
"THIS IS THE MOST BULLS**T WORDLE EVER F**K THIS S**T WTF," said one furious fan.
"Trite? @nytimes fu**ing trite?! You ruined my perfect wordle record with TRITE?! AN IMAGINARY WORD," said another fan who didn't believe that trite was even a valid answer.
"Trite is not a real word is it? Wordle 396 X/6," said another.

If you were one of the many players that failed to solve this challenge because you were unfamiliar with the word 'trite,' don't worry! You are not alone. The word trite is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as, "hackneyed or boring from much use, not fresh or original."
To give an example, the Cambridge dictionary highlights that you could say 'His lyrics about love and peace are too trite for me to take them seriously." You could also say, "I know it will sound trite, but I've loved being part of this club."
