The answer to the Wordle challenge on Friday, April 21 is 'kayak.' While this is a fairly common word, the fact that it ends in 'ak' stumped lots of users.

Players took to social media to share their thoughts on today's challenge. "Didn't like that one," one fan stated, while another player commented, "Oh, it's a Wordle trick kind of day today!"

Another added, "Totally failed #Wordle today. Couldn't think of a word ending with those letters," while a further user simply wrote, "Talk about a toughie."

Others decided to make light of the challenge, making hilarious water puns to reference the word kayak and give hints to fellow players.

Kayak meaning

Some players struggled to solve the puzzle because the letters were confusing, but some struggled with today's challenge because they were unfamiliar with the word. The word is not particularly common in everyday life, so what does the word kayak mean?

A kayak is a type of canoe, with the dictionary describing it as "a small, light, narrow boat, pointed at both ends, with a covering over the top, which is moved by using a paddle."

An example of the word kayak used in a sentence would be: "He said that the highlight of the trip was being allowed to get into a kayak and row across a lake."
