Delimit

Hey all

I have a question to do with delimiting . Here are some examples :

when?

prizes!

(age)

end.

;house}|+

*note

hh`GG1

Basically, just to remove all symbols and to leave them as clean dictionary words .

Is there a macro to do this ? Because our data runs in thousands

Thank you
