How can I check if a certain word is in a string?

I was wondering if it’s possible to check if a word is in a string. Such as;

if 'something' is in 'something is happening!!!' then

Note: That won’t work. It’s just a concept idea.

Fun fact, Python actually does it like that.

cool_string = "Hi lol"

if "lol" in cool_string:
    print("yes")

But this isn’t about Python! In Lua you can use string.match:

local cool_string = "Hi lol"

if cool_string:match("lol") then
    print("yes")
end

It returns the actual match, otherwise nil if there is no match.
