Wordle 403 clues

We don’t give the answers to Wordle right away in case players only want a hint. After all, part of the fun is finding out the word with your own brainpower.

These three clues can help narrow down the choices:

Clue #1: The answer to Wordle 403 is a noun.

Clue #2: The answer to Wordle 403 has two of the same consonant and two of the same vowel.

Clue #3: The answer to Wordle 403 is similar to the word “slogan.”

The two pairs of the same letter were what caught many players off guard. We typically try to eliminate as much of the alphabet as possible. However, in this case, we only really need to guess three letters because two of them are doubled. Doubles aren’t unheard of, but two? Less so.

If you don’t want the answer spoiled, avert your eyes from the final section of this article.

The answer to Wordle 403 is MOTTO.

As per Merriam-Webster, a motto is a “sentence, phrase, or word inscribed on something as appropriate to or indicative of its character or use” or "short expression of a guiding principle.”

It can be seen as a slogan, catchphrase, or general saying that defines the user. For example, Pokemon’s motto is “gotta catch ‘em all!” Yeah, that’s a catchphrase, but it’s also a motto. Another popular motto is “life’s hard, and then you die.”
