How do I Link Internally Using Words Other Than the Title of the Page?:

Lord of the Avians
This is probably obvious, but I really can't figure it out, and I can't find anything that tells me how.

Incase the title didn't explain well enough: How do you link internally(like using double { to make a wikiword) without using the title of the article being linked to. e.g. Rather than say "Bob the evil genius had a dog. He would often pet the dog." say "Bob the evil genius had a dog he loved dearly.", and link to pet the dog using words dog-through-dearly.

If this is already somewhere else, I'm sorry(but I couldn't find it).

Please see Text Formatting Rules. What you want is a Pot Hole.

However, also take a look at Sinkhole. The example you used (Pet the Dog) would be a Sinkhole, since Pet the Dog has nothing to do with liking the dog, or even literally petting a dog.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
