Saint Patrick’s Day Vocabulary

Saint Patrick’s Day is here! From the celebration of the life of Saint Patrick, to the beginning of spring, to the chance to go out with your friends, this holiday means so many things to many people.
Because of the array of meanings, Saint Patrick’s day has an equally broad set of St Patrick’s Day Vocabulary. From the traditional words, like Ireland, Celtic, and Tradition, to the modern of Limerick, Leprechaun, and Green, this holiday provides so many great words to choose from. So, in honor of the holiday, we’re doing a Word Unscramble of SHAMROCK; so let’s dive in and see what words we can find inside!

SHAMROCK unscrambled

7 letter words

Shamrock is an interesting word. Despite only being eight letters long, there are two unique seven letter words hiding inside of it! Before you keep reading, take a moment to see if you can find any of them (they’re pretty tough)!

Five Letter Words

Much like the predecessors, there are many five letter words hiding within Shamrock. Pull out your watch and give yourself two minutes; how many can you find? Shamrock shows the value of the ‘S’ tile in Words with Friends, as it can take shorter words and pluralize them. Ending a word with an ‘S’ can help you connect it to the board where it may not otherwise have fit.

  • Smack

    15 points

    Slang for heroin.

  • Smock

    15 points

    A loose coat like outer garment, often worn to protect the clothes while working.

  • Korma

    A dish of South Asian origin in which meat or vegetables are braised or simmered in a rich, highly seasoned sauce thickened with ground nuts, yogurt or cream, and sometimes coconut.

Four Letter Words

When doing a word unscramble like this, the four letter words are often low scoring. This is true of four letter words overall; they are more useful in tactical plays, such as hitting a Bonus space, or blocking an opponent’s play. However, Shamrock has three letters of reasonable value; the C, M and K. Because of these, we see some of the four letter words inside Shamrock score some real points.

  • Mack

    14 points

    An individual skilled in the art of seduction using verbal skills.

  • Mock

    14 points

Three-Letter Words

As we’ve seen above, having the letters SHAMROCK (minus one, of course, unless you’re playing the physical version of Words with Friends and accidentally drew eight tiles), is a pretty good place to be. There are many versatile and high scoring words that can be found. However, sometimes the board is just so jammed up that you can’t find a place to play those flash words, what do you do then? Use your three-letter words, of course. Knowing these smaller connectors opens your games up, allowing you to find valuable plays, even in tight spaces. As an extra bonus, the high-scoring letters in SHAMROCK lead to some high scoring plays, as far as short words go.

  • Ack

    10 points
