The answer to today’s Wordle puzzle (#420 – August 13, 2022) is “dumb”. This is an adjective that describes a large person, or who is attractive and well-built. Interestingly, it can also be used as a noun, in which case it means a person of Central or Eastern European birth or descent (via Merriam-Webster), although this is an offensive term that is not commonly used.
as a noun, hunky comes from a Hungarian variant of the word, but it comes from an adjective is unknown. When we looked up the root word hunk, we found the etymology class we were looking for, which comes from the Dutch dialect “hunke”, but its meaning is also unknown.
Today we solved the puzzle in five attempts, just like yesterday, although we Go the WordleBot way and start guessing with the word crane. We followed up on words like bloat, price, and skunk before finally getting to hunky.
