Today’s Wordle Answer May 24th
The Wordle answer today is album.
The etymology of the word album is actually really fun, originating in Latin and meaning a white-painted writing tablet.
To be fancy, German scholars in the 1600s coined the phrase “album amicorum” - literally “book of friends” - to refer to the friendship books where they’d collect friend’s and teacher’s signatures and write letters and poems to each other.
It’s through that usage that the word came into English, and over time the phrase shortened so just the word album meant a collection of keepsakes and souvenirs. Then when home music records started to gain popularity, the meaning was colloquially stretched to include them because of how their packaging looked.
