Barry Silk included the names of Lawrence WELK, THOMASPAINE, JAMESKPOLK, ballerina SVETLANA Zakharova, Munsters co-star ALLEWIS and Exodus co-star Sal MINEO. He clued AHSO with "Understanding words." Really? I think "Ah so" is a facetious expression and does not necessarily convey understanding.

"Ah so" is a cute way of saying one understands; thus, "Understanding words" seems apt.  First time I heard it was in a Charlie Chan movie.  The last time was in some classroom full of effete posers into which I sadly found myself.
