File matching both World.History and World History

What is the best way to file match when the words may or may not be separated by periods? I need to use "contains" as the file names could have extra words.

i.e. World.History.2019 or World History [new] 2019

Thanks for any help.

Are you searching specifically for the words "World" and "History" in this case?

yes. it's just the added words or symbols that are causing issues.

You can either search for the words separately or if it has to be in a phrase, you'll need two conditions to cover each variation.
