I’m encountering a challenge that serious word gamers could have anticipated. My word search function doesn’t discriminate between words I search for like “traction” and the words they can be embedded in like “distraction.” When I tried that last example I got dozens of old posts which I was sure was inflated. It was.
I don’t have time to reread all the old posts under such circumstances to see which ones contain the word I’m searching for. Maybe I could solve this by putting quote marks around the word. One more wrinkle for me to iron out.

apoplexy – four times
