search by word


Explanation:
in computer terms is called "search by word". Most of the time you have the options to search by word, search by country, search by author, search by book, etc.

A Word search is usally a game where you have a box filled with letters and a list of words to search for inside the box. Normally you search the word and circle it.

Good Luck!
