Wordle of The Day Hints & Answer for Word 414: August 7, 2022

It's Wordle hint time and we've got you covered!

Welcome to your Wordle hints and answer for the day! We’ve reached Sunday, August 7, 2022 and we’re solving Wordle 414. It’s kind of strange to think that we’re already a full week through August, to be honest. Though I’m not personally complaining. Unlike a lot of my coworkers, I haven’t been dealing with the heat as much where I live. Yet I still prefer autumn to any other season. It’s just the perfect mix of weather and beautiful fallen leaves. I’m sentimental like that! But enough of that. On to the today’s Wordle hints!

We’re going to give some hints first before sharing the answer. If you just want said answer, scroll to the very bottom of the article. It’s right there in bold text below the aforementioned “SPOILER WARNING.” For those of you who just want a tiny nudge in the right direction, the next section includes both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, a very broad category of what it could be, etc.) followed by some more specific clues. The latter should (hopefully) all but tell you what the word is.

Today’s Wordle Word Hints of the Day: #414

In this section, we try to keep things vague and only point you in the right direction. Hints at this stage will be more about the meaning of the word, rather than any specific letters that are used in the word itself. We also won’t use other methods like “rhymes with,” “sounds similar to,” and the like. More specific hints are included just after that — finally followed by the full solution after a Wordle spoiler warning. Figured we’d just warn you one last time!

Easy Hints

These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!

  • Typically used as a verb.
  • Usually relates to something greasy or viscous.

Even with those two hints, there are still plenty more possibilities to choose from. We’ll try to narrow things down in the next section!

More Specific Hints

You still totally get credit (and keep your streak) if you need these beefier hints. Let’s narrow it down and get a bit more specific.

  • It’s something you do with toppings on toast or bagels.
  • A type of dirty campaign tactic used by politicians.

Still drawing a blank? Think about it some more or scroll down for the final answer reveal.
