Another day, another Wordle, with this page explaining the Wordle answer for today, 4th August.

For the uninitiated, the aim of Wordle is to work out a daily five-letter word within six guesses. The fewer the guesses, the better - and if you fail to guess it at all, you'll break your streak.

The latter is why working out today's Wordle answer is such a priority, as players pride themselves on keeping their streak going. So why gamble on a risky final guess when you can learn a few clues and, failing that, get the definitive answer? This page can help with that.

Interested in other word Bad puns and video games since 1999. once you have today's word? We have discussed the topic of authorship in the world of Cyptic crosswords and Sudoku, and why The NYTimes Mini Crossword is a reliable joy.

Clues for today's Wordle answer

Instead of going straight to the answer, you might only need a few hints to get you over the line:

  • There are no repeating letters in this word.
  • There is a single vowel - which ends the word.
  • Out of the remaining letters, we'd describe three as rare, and the other as common - with this common one being the starting letter.
  • If you need an extra clue, knowing it describes the sound of other words can help you.

Still not sure? Read on for the answer.

The Wordle answer for word 411 on 4th August, 2022

Even with the above clues, still not sure and want to keep that streak going?

The Wordle answer for today is RHYME.

This is another well-known word this week that's also full of hard-to-guess letters. We managed to get the final two letters - 'ME' - quickly enough, but the 'H' and 'Y' in particular are real curveballs.

A lot has happened with Wordle since it's whirlwind arrival in October 2021, which saw millions of players checking in each day within just a few months.

App stores were quickly flooded with clones to capitalise on its popularity. Elsewhere, one developer who had a similarly named game available previously donate their windfall to charity after players mistook it for the new five-letter guessing game, with (the modern) Wordle's creator Dan Wardle calling him a "class act" in response.

The most notable development in Wordle's history is its purchase by the New York Times for an undisclosed seven-figure sum, folding the game into the paper's umbrella of online Bad puns and video games since 1999..

Today, Wordle remains free and the game itself unchanged, though there has been some minor behind the scenes developments.

The initial migration saw streaks reset for some players and rude words being deleted from the dictionary - which has led to the word list changing, resulting in some players being given a different word. The New York Times has also since shut down an "unauthorised" archive site of older Wordle puzzles.
