The word swash is used as noun and the meaning that can be figured out from the word is the flow of water to the beach when the phenomenon of breaking of waves happened. The word is usually used in the technical language and you can hardly come across the word in your day-to-day conversation.

Though the word is not used very often, it became one of the most often used words when it is conjugated with the word 'buckling' to form the word swashbuckling. The word is quite often used when somebody is talking especially about movies. The meaning that the word conveys is that of something that is set in the past and is full of action and adventure; particularly the movies in which you find that the fighting happened with swords.
