It simply looks through tonnes of dictionary definitions and grabs the ones that most closely match your search query. For example, if you type something like "longing for a time in the past", then the engine will return "nostalgia". The engine has indexed several million definitions so far, and at this stage it's starting to give consistently good results though it may return weird results sometimes.
It acts a lot like a thesaurus except that it allows you to search with a definition, rather than a single word.
So in a sense, this tool is a "search engine for words", or a sentence to word converter. I made this tool after working on Related Words which is a very similar tool, except it uses a bunch of algorithms and multiple databases to find similar words to a search query.
