Today’s Wordle Word of The Day Hints & Answer #327: May 12, 2022

Fun with words (written and otherwise).

Wordle hints and the solution to today’s puzzle are waiting for you below, as usual! And we don’t blame you one bit for looking. Today is a bit of a doozy — or at least a word that we don’t often have cause to say very often. Though it is somewhat fun to say. Those little turns of phrase that just feel good to express in the English language. I’m sure most of us know about “cellar door” and the like. Though I’ve always been partial to “smote” myself. Not that I have much cause to use that word in my day-to-day life, either. Which is exactly why I’m taking this opportunity to type it out in front of you now! Really, though, we should get on with the Wordle Word of the Day for Thursday, May 12, 2022 (otherwise known as Wordle #327). Read on below for those hints and the answer!

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.

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!

  • Is a past participle verb.
  • Refers to the position of an object.

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
