Just need a reqular expression to do an exact word match.  For example;

String 1 =  This a test containing a Street.
String 2 =  Street is in the string at the beg.
String 3 =  St. is some chars Street in this big string.
String 4 =  This string contains Streets not str.


I need the expression to find "Street" in strings 1 -3 above.  String 4 should not be picked up.
