remove an element from an array

I'm trying to parse a sentence and want to remove selected words from the
middle.

Consider:

dim a() as object = split(mySentence)

for each w in a()
select case w
case w.startswith("X")
'code to remove this specific word from the array
end select
next

result = join(a)

Can't find a way to remove the word. Any help out there?

I'm now looking at arrayList, which might have the methods I need, but
haven't figured out how to do the split trick.

I would first use replace to get rid of any double spaces then use split to
split the sentence up into an array of words based as a space as the
delimiter.
