Tagging text and finding later by name

Is there a way in any version of Word to select some text and give it a name so that I can then search for it later. So for instance I go through a document and select different sections - could be snippets, phrases, large chunks.  For each one I select I assign a name - e.g. when I select the first grouping I might choose to identify it as Recipe. The next chunk I choose I might want to name Games.  Then the third chunk I might want to name Recipe again  The fourth could be Furnishings.  The fifth Games again and the 6th Recipe again.  Once I have done this 'tagging' I would want to be able to search through the document for all sections I have marked Recipe - highlight them all or let me flip through them consecutively.

If this is not in Word an add-on that would do it would be ok. If no add-ons and no way to do in Word another Word processor or any editing type of  utility would do.

Please note however I want to highlight/select and name - I don't want to be creating markers for the beginning and end of a chunk and then somehow giving a 'name' to the stuff inbetween.

Hi,

You could use bookmarks, but bookmarks are unique so you'll have to name eg.

Recipe001
Recipe002 and so on

Bookmarks go to a point in the text. I want to highlight text and label it some way and then find all the ones that have similar labels. Please re-read my question.  The comment function comes close but I can't seem to give a name or even a code to a comment.

And do you use the comment text in other ways?
