Yes, I'll keep playing with it, it's already saved me dozens of hours of
work, thanks. Now, just 25 letters of the alphabet to go!

I find the WIKISEARCH a bit overly permissive for
general use, but it did
find some useful matches.
The underlying Wikipedia API request is to the best of my
understanding essentially the same as a regular on-Wikipedia search.
You might get better results by setting the optional second parameter
"opt_didYouMean" to true like so: =WIKISEARCH("search term", TRUE).
some cases it then shows the most probable alternative result that you
might have wanted to actually search for instead. Give it a spin.
Also, together with the pipeline I have set up for you in the sheet,
you can filter on type, so when you know you are looking for "instance
of: human", you can exclude anything non-human. Hope this helps!
