Well, not as simple as I thought unless I'm missing something that can
do...I had to resort to loop construct and testing...

for i=1:length(A)
if cellfun('isclass',A(i),'char');
if strfind(lower(char(A(i))),'is')

I didn't play w/ regxp; I'm not very adept so there may be a trivial
answer there...
