Using Regex in Java

So I am writing code that reads in a text file line by line. On each line I split the text using the following regex:

Collections.addAll(words, line.split("[^\\w'@-]+"));

So this is giving me what I want except numbers are also coming through. I tried adding 0-9 and \d to my regex but it is making no difference.

So my question is how can I add to this regex to not add numbers to my list?

Thanks.
