Many members here are obviously math-oriented, but here's something of a Word Challenge for those that enjoy word puzzles.

Find three different 11-letter words that when each are placed in a row, eleven different 3-letter words are formed in each of the eleven columns.

All 14 words must be official "Scrabble" words.

(For example, the 3-letter words PAD, ODE, and TON when each are placed in a row

PAD
ODE
TON

form the words POT, ADO, and DEN in the three corresponding columns. Your task is to find three different 11-letter words that form eleven different 3-letter words in the columns.)


You can verify if a word is valid in Scrabble here: https://scrabble.hasbro.com/en-us/tools#dictionary

I could not access an official list of three-letter scrabble word at your link, but I found another source of 1122 3-letter scrabble words elsewhere. I hope that my solutions don't accidentally use a wrong word if my list differs from the official list.

I was able to quickly find dozens of triplets of 11-letter words where the first 8 letters are a solution. It took a few minutes to find one set where the first nine letters work. Finding one solution where the first ten letters work took five minutes.
aba bap aba cor tot inn nee ars lis lee
abactinally
babooneries
apartnesses

I did a quick estimate that checking all of the 11-letter words in my list in every order will take about two years using only one processor. This estimate may be way off. I don't know how far into the exhaustive process I will need to go to find my first 11-letter solution. I expect that there are a very large number of solutions to be found.

But who likes 3x11 crossword puzzles?

Okay, I added a simple hash table to quickly check the 3-letter words. Now, I think I can find all possible solutions for 11 letters within my word list in less than four days. I am finding hundreds of solutions per hour. Therefore, I think I will eventually find tens of thousands of solutions. Even if my list of words happens to include words that are not in the official scrabble dictionary, many of the solutions will be valid. I am finding a very large number of sets of solutions with a common word or words such as:

I’m out, three of the questions I have to look up. I’ll do that, and guess, but I’m calling this one a fail for me.

Edit: turns out I did know 3. Looked up the other two. I have no idea on the kennection, let me think a while.

It's hard to give a hint for this one without giving too much away. I will say that gordonm888's answers are 100% correct and that you might think about UNLV sports.

I'll guess: Rebel

Although I don't know how Isis (presumably you mean ISIS) really fits into that; it's not really a "rebel state"
UNLV: Runnin' Rebels
James Dean: Rebel Without a Cause
Stonewall Jackson: fought for the "rebels" (the Confederacy)
Princess Leia: so did she (against the Empire)

Yes, they're all rebels. As for ISIS, you'd have to ask Ken Jennings as this was one of his.

Eh. Kinda. I said Lord Farquaad instead of Prince Charming. Not up on my Shrek stuff, only saw it once when our daughter was young. Interesting fact: the writers of Shrek were undergrads at Notre Dame. Most of the dorms are in one area of the campus, but there is one dorm, Carroll Hall, that is located across St Mary’s Lake, which is where they roomed. It is known colloquially as “the far quad”. Hence, Lord Farquaad.

I knew the clues, couldn’t find the connection, had no patience and looked it up, felt stupid.

The five answers are pretty straightforward, but I have no idea what connects them. I’ve had half a day at it, so it’s not going to happen.
