Re: full text query on lookup table

A FULLTEXT search on "people" would find all three examples you gave.

MATCH (title) AGAINST ("many people")
would probably give you the same results, since 'many' is probably in the "stopword" list.

Not, also, the default ft_min_word_len is 4, meaning that "a lot of people" would be treated the same as "people".

FOREIGN KEYs do not apply with FULLTEXT indexes.

I think you are stuck with either FULLTEXT and its less-than-perfect qualities. Or you should plan on manually extracting "keywords" (people, cat, etc) and putting them in a `Tags` table.
