This question already has an answer here:
I confuse with usage of 探し in this sentence:
I have tried to google it. But they show me 探す which is a u-verb. And I am unable to find sagashi. The closest one is sagashita which is its past form. It is a type of clipping such as "chemistry" becomes "chem" or what?
My question is: in what form sagashi is and when to use it?
