SUTOM: will you be able to find the word of the day?
Solution: the SUTOM word of the day
The solution to SUTOM of Wednesday January 10, 2024 is the following word: DIPHTONGUE
Etymology and definition in the dictionary Larousse
- Complex vowel whose timbre gradually changes once during its emission (for example in English [ei] day, [or] nose; in German [au], Haus; in Spanish [ue] muerte; in Italian [uo] cuore). [In modern French, there are no more diphthongs: the spellings eu, au, ou correspond to simple vowels [ø], [o] and [u].]
What are the SUTOM rules?
SUTOM is a browser puzzle game, the aim of which is to guess a word composed of 6 to 9 letters. It is a derivative of the famous game show MOTUS broadcast for almost 30 years on France 2 by Thierry Beccaro.
The word to guess changes every day, and you have 6 tries to find it. To make things easier, you know the first letter of the search word in advance. Furthermore, SUTOM only offers words present in the French dictionary.
Each time you try to come up with a word, you will get clues to help you progress in your thinking. Indeed, certain letters that you have placed could change color in order to give you indications:
- If a letter remains circled in blue, this means that this letter does not appear in the searched word
- If a letter is surrounded by a yellow circle, it means that it is in the search word, but it is not in the correct location
- If a letter is circled in red, it means that it is in the word and is in the right place
After finding the word of the day, a window opens to summarize the statistics of your games, and to invite you to share your results on social networks.

Tips and tricks
SUTOM is not an easy game, and many users rack their brains for several dozen minutes before finally finding the word of the day or failing.
To help you find the daily SUTOM solution, here are some tips and tricks.
French has only 6 vowels for no less than 20 consonants. However, all French words – if we exclude onomatopoeia – contain at least one vowel.
To get your SUTOM game off to a good start, start by placing as many vowels as possible in your word. If you can eliminate a lot of them, you might very quickly find out which vowels make up the word you’re looking for.
Eliminate the most used letters of the French language
Not all of our dear alphabet have the same importance in French. If we take for example all the content of Wikipedia in French, the E represents 12.10% of the letters used while the Z lags far behind with its unfortunate 0.15%.
It is therefore in your best interest to focus on the most used letters, because they have a significant probability of appearing in the searched word. Here are the 10 most used letters in the French language: E, A, I, S, N, R, T, O, L, U
Don’t be fooled by a double letter
SUTOM’s word of the day may well contain a duplicate letter, but many players forget this somewhat disingenuous rule.
Indeed, the game will never tell you that a letter is duplicate, unless you try to place the letter in question twice in the word.
If you notice that widely used letters (like E) or often doubled letters (like S, T or L) are part of your word, don’t hesitate to try adding a second copy of these letters.
Don’t get stuck on one part of the word
It’s easy to get stuck on a word for long minutes, searching again and again for which letter sequence could constitute the beginning of the word.
When this happens, it can be helpful to take a step back. If you can’t put your finger on the beginning of a word that might be the right one, turn the problem around and start at the end. Sometimes, you just need to find the right ending for a word so that its beginning becomes obvious to us.
