What is the Wordle answer 414? (August 7, 2022)
The Wordle answer 414 is now “SMEAR.”
“SMEAR” as a verb means to “coat or mark (something) messily or carelessly with a greasy or sticky substance” or “damage the reputation of (someone) by false accusations; slander.” As a noun, it means “a mark or streak of a greasy or sticky substance” or “a sample of tissue or other material taken from part of the body, spread thinly on a microscope slide for examination, typically for medical diagnosis.” (Definitions from Oxford Languages)
“SMEAR” should be a relatively easy one for most players. The vowels are likely to be found first, with most players incorporating a generous number of vowels into their starting guesses. The “R” and “S” letters are also very common, which should also be taken care of early into the guesses count. It’s just the “M” and piecing the letters together that adds a bit of difficulty.
Those who are finding it tough to track down the correct word may want to try knocking out as many incorrect letters as possible with each new guess. Provided you aren’t playing on Hard Mode, which forces players to use confirmed guesses in all of the subsequent attempts, it’s best to use each new guess to eliminate as many potential letters as possible.
