today’s wordle answer (august 29th, 2022): puzzle 436 hints, clues, and solution

Today’s Wordle answer for August 29th, 2022, sits at the top of the tree, the head of the department, but that doesn’t make it any easier to figure out.

The word used in Puzzle 436 is an interesting one, since it breaks one of the classic mnemonics that a lot of people learned at school for spelling words like receive. But that’s not what makes it a tricky challenge in Wordle, though.

The hardest part of today’s puzzle is a combination of lesser-seen consonants and positions you don’t often find them in.

But, with that said, you’ve got a nice easy core of soft vowels to build around as you try to whittle down the possibilities elsewhere. So with a little help, the right letters should fall into place in no time.

To help you get to that point sooner rather than later, we’ve come up with some Wordle hints for August 29th, 2022, to get you started. Plus we’ve also drawn up a list of recent solutions from across the last month to give you some ideas too.

Today’s Wordle Answer August 29th

The Wordle answer today is chief.

The word chief first appeared in Middle English around 1300, pronounced more like “chef”, which is ironic given the modern English word chef also comes from the same etymological root.

They both come from an Old French word – also “chief” – which itself comes from the Latin word “capus” which means captain or leader.

In this sense, chef literally means “head of the kitchen”, whereas the word chief has a more general connotation.
