Is it possible to search word in terminal?

I had doubt is it possible to search the matching of words(i.e in the below image i want to search word month)using terminal.How can i search it using LINUX command.

Use grep command to extract the words you want as follows :

grep --color -i -E "{regex|word}" {filename}

Otherwise open the vim editor and press : then type hlsearch to set the searching words to be highlighted if they are matching. Now open the file with vim editor and start searching.
