## Quordle today (game #884) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #884, are…

• NORTH
• LEVER
• SERUM
• SLATE

I was once again indebted to my three start words today - between them they gave me all five letters for two of the answers, four for another and three for the third. That was important, because a couple of these words were theoretically quite hard to identify.

LEVER has repeated Es and an uncommon V in it, plus it's an 'ER' word. The issue there is that there are so many of them that identifying the right combination of letters in the first three places can be very hard. SERUM is also a tricky one, partly because of the UM ending, which is not common, and partly because it's not a word that many people will use very often.
