SQL server query

I have the following query, it works fine but need to extend it a little

The query looks at strshort and where the clients share the same strshort description it returns the rows (essentially its matching client codes)

There are some exceptions in this case its "XC90 VOR PREMIUM" it will never get into the rows as that client used an abbreviation of VOR. to fix that I created a new table called TblShortDescLink
Ive manually made the links in this table by making strcommon
exampleI would like to include the strshort from the third table where a.strshort =thirdtable.strcommon

I am not sure how to do that.

use Dictionary
SELECT a.Strshort, a.ClientName, a.ClientCode
FROM TblWords A
JOIN TblWords B
            ON A.StrShort = B.StrShort
                  AND A.ClientName <> B.ClientName
where a.Strshort like'xc90%Ocean%' --and a.ClientName='Smmt'

group by a.Strshort, a.ClientName, a.ClientCode
order by a.StrShort, a.ClientName, a.ClientCode

The question is: Why want you to include that third table?

E.g.
SELECT  A.Strshort ,
        A.ClientName ,
        A.ClientCode
FROM    TblWords A
WHERE   A.Strshort LIKE 'xc90%Ocean%'
        AND EXISTS ( SELECT *
                     FROM   TblWords B
                     WHERE  A.StrShort = B.StrShort
                            AND A.ClientName <> B.ClientName )
        AND EXISTS ( SELECT *
                     FROM   thirdtable C
                     WHERE  A.StrShort = C.strcommon )
ORDER BY A.StrShort ,
        A.ClientName ,
        A.ClientCode;
