comment Removing non-word characters from a string
@Szabolcs Yes! I hadn't thought of that. In general, I have trouble figuring out when to use | and when to use {...,...}, or when to use .. or ..., etcetera. Anything you'd recommend me to read? The official reference pages aren't very n00b-friendly.

comment Removing non-word characters from a string
@Szabolcs You're right, é is matched by WordCharacter, I must've had some other error in my code. The other problem persists: I don't want ' and - taken out. Is there any way I can change Except[WordCharacter].. to something similar to Except[{WordCharacter,Characters["'-"]}]..?

comment Removing non-word characters from a string
@RunnyKine I'd rather have it omit all non-letter characters (except for ' and -), as there are some pretty weird ones in these articles. I'd rather not have to specify them all manually.
