Today's Wordle answer July 7

Today's Wordle answer is: AGAPE.

Agape is one of those interesting words that almost always appears in one specific context. In this case, you hear about someone with their "mouth agape in astonishment", but you never really see it used anywhere else. There is also a word in Greek that's spelled the same (it means love, incidentally, specifically in a spiritual or religious context), but we're confident that's not the one Wordle was going for on this occasion, since this particular version of Wordle only uses words in English. Now you know, be sure to keep the solution to yourself until tomorrow so that other Wordle enthusiasts can have their turn!

Whew, that was a bit of a tricky one, wasn't it? If today's Wordle gave you some trouble, consider checking out our guide to the best Wordle starting words so that you can hit the ground running tomorrow. We also have a list of past Wordle answers that you can use to help you rule out already-used words before you guess.
