[R] Removing numbers from a list

I am using gsub to remove numbers for each element of a list. Code is given

  testList <- list("this contains a number 1000","this does not contain")
  removeNumbers <- function(X)
  outputList <- lapply(testList,removeNumbers)

However, when I try to find the number of words in outputList as follows

  outLength <- lapply(strsplit(outputList," "),length)

it throws out the following error:

  Error in strsplit(outputList, " ") : non-character argument

Can someone help me with this? 

Thank you.
