My guess is that the word they collect lots of responses for the unknown word and when they get a minimum number of common responses they can be pretty sure they've got the right word.

E.g. 90 responses say 'gadget', 5 say guage, and 5 other responses, you could make a calculated guess that it must say gadget!
