Is there a way to display the word in the middle of this example using the mid formula?

1234-word-123
12-wordtwo-12

The word length and number length may vary. This is what I have so far...
=mid(A1,find("-",A1)+1,XXX)
I do not know what to put in place of "XXX"
Any ideas?

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

How about if you want to pick the numbers at the end of the cell after the dash?
