The answer to today's Wordle puzzle (#473 – October 5, 2022 ) is marsh. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a marsh is an area of soft wet land, which is easily and usually flooded in wet seasons or at high tide, and so remains waterlogged at all times.

The word marsh has its origin in Middle English's "mersh," which is from the Old English words "mersc" or "merisc," meaning marsh or swamp. It's also possibly derived from Late Latin's "mariscus," which is itself from Proto-West Germanic "marisk" derived from "mari" or "mere." The latter two words both mean sea or body of water (via Etymonline).
