Wordle

Postby Stefano » Fri Sep 24, 2010 7:21 pm

Hello,

In the language tools page, is written: "make your own Wordle".

What does it means "Wordle", I couldn't find it anywhere.

Thanks.

I think Wordle is simply a name, based on the word "word". As far as I know it has no specific meaning. (You can know it's a name is because it's written with a capital W.)

On the official Wordle site a Wordle is defined as a “toy for generating word clouds”. A "word cloud" is a group of words where the importance or relative frequency of particular words is indicated by their size.
