Today’s Wordle answer for August 14th, 2022, is very well camouflaged, so you will have to work hard to pick it out.

Puzzle 421 is a brilliant challenge and an interesting one because the understanding of the word is different around the world. It’s probably most commonly used in the USA, where it has a more specific meaning in addition to its general one, that’s not used elsewhere.

However, with a few well-placed clues even the toughest puzzles can be toppled. And there’s definitely no shame in getting some help when the words are this awkward to guess.

To give you a much-needed boost, we’ve come up with some Wordle hints for August 14th, 2022, to make things a little bit easier. Then we’ve also updated our running list of recent solutions from across the last month to give you a few ideas.

Today’s Wordle Answer August 14th

The Wordle answer today is khaki.

Originally meaning “dust-coloured cloth”, khaki is a loanword in English from Urdu, a south Asian language spoken primarily in Pakistan and India, with roots in Middle Persian – a much older language than English spoken around the 3rd Century.

Khaki first entered English during the 19th Century, during the British imperial rule of India, when it was used to refer to cavalry uniforms.

Since then, in a lot of the English-speaking world the word has come to mean anything that’s a shade of dark green-brown more generally. But in America it’s also used to refer to a style of smart-casual trousers that are brown, green, or tan.

That’s your streak safe for another day, but there’s more fun to be had. Check out some these fun Wordle alternatives!
