I gave up. But I had guessed quite early on that ?-??? was

but failed to twig that each bit, either side of the hyphen, was treated as a separate word, so it never appeared as success on my word list.

That was frustrating !
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I solved today's Redactle (#311) in 8 guesses with an accuracy of 75.00%. Played at https://www.redactle.com/

In reality, that was 4 guesses with a 100% accuracy because the software did insist on generating plurals for each word, two of which scored 0 hits. They were words for which I can think of no context in which they would be pluralised.

Got the first title word on my first guess, but then cocked it up a bit.

I was very lucky really, although I'd be interested in seeing what the most common words were in Wikipedia entries. I went for what I thought were pretty safe

Very fortunate to get two in the title in the first three. The 4th word was one or the other of opposites.

You can set it to auto generate plurals or not. Your choice. Click the settings menu at the top of the page.

Well, it appear that mine is set not to pluralise/singularise words, but it still does.  ???

#312 claims 34 guesses at 35.29% but again, half of those unwanted plurals.

On my iThing it pluralises with the return key, and not when I press the button.

Also, a score of 20 today. Which I was pleased with.
