If you haven’t cracked the code yet, the answer to today’s Wordle quiz is pretty much done. The word edge tracks its history goes back to brinke from Old English, which in turn has Scandinavian roots in Old Norse words brenka or brinka. There is also a Proto-Germanic word called brinkaz that has a similar meaning: a hill or edge of land.
When used in its Germanic form, it means the edge of a steep landform, which can be anything from a gorge or a pit to a huge canyon. As the centuries passed, the English language gave more depth to the use of brink, meaning now a condition, time or event that is about to happen in the near future.
During the Cold War era, the act of brinkmanship became a signature tactic of United States Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. “You have to take risks for peace,” Dulles said, explaining his brinkmanship policy in an interview with Life magazine. “The ability to get to the brink without going to war is the necessary art. If you don’t master it, you will inevitably go to war. If you try to run away, if you’re afraid of going to the brink go, you’re lost.”
