Cemantle is a daily word-guessing game, similar to Wordle, but based on semantic similarity rather than guessing the word letter-by-letter. It employs the Word2Vec machine learning model to determine relationships between words. It is an English variation of the French-language game cémantix, itself inspired by the earlier game Semantle.

The player's goal is to guess a target English word, which is different every day. The player inputs his guesses, and the game shows a numerical measure of the guessed word's semantic similarity to the target word. For example, if the target word is seat, then words like chair or ticket would have a high similarity score, while mouse would have a low or even negative score.
