Words with THAT 1-2-3-1 pattern
 
How many 1-2-3-1 words are there?

These come to mind for starters:

THAT (the default, I've found)
ELSE
HIGH

What a list.

Whew!

Whoa, Lacon! That list is a keeper! Thank you for sharing it here.

"Hath" -- I bet this one has caused me to give up more times than I realize. I need to keep it in mind for quotes from the thee/thou authors.

And yes, ouzo is a great one. I will post back here if I ever find a quote with it!

Three more that I did not find on Lacon's list: tact, tart, test.

Aerie: Nice list but noon does not qualify. The two middle letters must differ.

Oddcouple, Thanks for noticing that; I will edit the list. ;)
