Problem 50948. Identify prime words

In a Numberphile video on evil primes, Tony Padilla introduced the “Jesus prime” 105,192,119, which is formed by concatenating the positions of the letters of ‘Jesus’ in the English alphabet: 10, 5, 19, 21, 19. In general, a prime word could be defined as a word such that the number formed by concatenating the positions of the letters in the alphabet is prime.
Write a function that takes a string and identifies prime words. It should delete apostrophes and hyphens (e.g. “don’t” = “dont”, “un-ionized” = “unionized”) and treat other punctuation as spaces. The function should return an array of 0’s and 1’s.
