Wordle of The Day Hints & Answer for Word 425: August 18, 2022

Wordle this, Wordle that. What's it gonna be this time?

Welcome to the Wordle of the day for August 18, 2022! This time around we’re solving Wordle 425 and it might just be a doozy. That’s what we’re to help with, of course, so let’s get right to it with another set of Wordle hints and a Wordle answer. Don’t get frustrated if you don’t get it right in the first few guesses! Always remember that there’s a bit of chance involved at the start of these.

As usual, 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 all but tell you what the word is.

Today’s Wordle Word Hints of the Day: #425

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!

  • Often associated with southern accents in the United States.
  • Also related to the sound musical instruments make.

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! Note that this one might include more specific types of hints not included before (that’s kind of the point).

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.

  • Not a “bang,” but another sound that rhymes with it.

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

Having grown up in the American Midwest, I don’t hear a lot of “southern twang” very often myself, but I do find the turn of phrase pretty charming. Hopefully you also found this particular Wordle more charming than frustrating!

How’s that streak going? Looking to step up your Wordle game? Check out our other Wordle coverage! Our tips guide will help you choose some of the best starting words, if that’s your thing; for those who struggle with the “Not in Word List” error, we also explain what that means here. For those of you who are somehow playing Wordle, but don’t understand why it’s so darn popular, we’ve also got an explainer for it so you finally know why it’s grown so quickly.

Did You Know: We’d love to simply list our hints and give you the answer as soon as possible, but Google requires there to be so many words on the page which is why so many of these Wordle guides have intros that drag on and talk about nonsense. We try to avoid too much of that here, but we figured we’d give you a peek behind the curtain for a second.
