Connections Reply by November 15
Have you finally given up and are ready for the solution? The answer to today’s Connections puzzle is:

When I first saw the word grid for Connections today, I was both confused and annoyed. But after I composed myself, I started to struggle with languages and how some of them could mean yes. And while I was almost there, Oui kept stopping me. Then my colleague pointed out that it could be a homophone. Once we saw that, we collected all the similar words and got the purple category first! Yes, the purple category (😎).
Once Oui was out of the way, it was easy to put the other languages together and get the blue category. The Yellow followed almost immediately, even though I had to stop and think (Google!) about what Pu meant. With only four words left, I combined them to finally get the Green category and solve the NYT Connections for November 15th.
