It's all in the help file...

$result = StringInStr("Do you wanna rock?", "rock")
If $result = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0,"","Not Found")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"","Found at position: " & $result)
EndIF

Another method, is to use StringRegExp() which will only match complete words.

StringRegExp offers more flexibility than StringInStr but is slower.

Which method you use depends on exactly what you require to find.

#include <array.au3>
Dim $result = StringRegExp("I love rock n roll, put another dime in the juke-box baby.", "\banother\b")
    If $result = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0,"","Not Found")
    Else
        MsgBox(0,"","Found")
    EndIF

    ;More examples for checking if one of several words is present demonstating different StringRegExp options 
    $result1 = StringRegExp("I love rock n roll, put another dime in the juke-box baby.", "\b(the|Jazz|juke|box|n)\b",1)
    _ArrayDisplay($result1,"Return form StringRegExp() with option 1")

    $result2 = StringRegExp("I love rock n roll, put another dime in the juke-box baby.", "\b(the|Jazz|juke|box|n)\b",2)
    _ArrayDisplay($result2, "Return form StringRegExp() with option 2")

    $result3 = StringRegExp("I love rock n roll, put another dime in the juke-box baby.", "\b(the|Jazz|juke|box|n)\b",3)
    _ArrayDisplay($result3, "Return form StringRegExp() with option 3")
