Today’s Wordle Answer August 8th

The Wordle answer today is unfit.

Whether you’re unfit physically or unfit for office, no one is quite sure of the etymology of the word fit other than it appeared around the time of Middle English in the 1300s.

The prefix “un-” however, has a much clearer origin. It’s been used as a negation since the time of Old English and, although it went into decline throughout Middle English, became even more popular in the 1500s where it was commonly used to form compounds with words borrowed from other languages.

If you’ve ever wondered why some negated words use different prefixes, like atypical or improbable, it’s because those words have roots in different languages originally. “A-” is for words that come from Greek, whereas “in-” or “im-” come from Latin.

Now you’re done here, take on your next challenge with these Wordle alternatives.
