I am not sure how to create an sql server query that will return the strings that have no numeric characters in them and then another that has ability to return mixed i.e A'4'.

The field word only holds one word.

so:
'0'
'001001101'
'F1'
'1f'
 would not be returned

words :

'sweeper'
'bhp'

would be returned the field name is word from Tblwords

You can use PATINDEX:
SELECT *
FROM tblWords
WHERE PATINDEX('%[0-9]%',Word)=0
