How to find old AskMeFi answers?

Recently I read a question on AskMeFi where the person was looking for a word that means internally self-consistent, i.e. to behave in a way in all aspects of one's life that was consistent with all other parts of one's life.
I can't find it, and rather than reading back through every page, I wondered if there was a quicker way.
Essentially I want to find all questions from _this_ year that are tagged with "words" or in the Language category. I can cheat and add "2009" to a Google search, but this matches the copyright notice. I can exclude the copyright notice, but this would exclude everything.
Reading every page in the language category, I can't find it.
I can use site:ask.metafilter.com all I like, but unless I search for "Jan 1 2009" OR "Jan 2 2009" I get too many results.
How do others do this?
