Problem 3047. Scrabble Scores - 2

Created by goc3 in Word Puzzles

An introductory Cody problem asks the user to score a Scrabble word. This problem is part of a set of problems that successively develop a more sophisticated Scrabble scoring routine.

Scrabble is a word board game wherein each letter tile is scored roughly according to its frequency (or lack thereof) in words. More common letters, such as vowels, are worth fewer points while difficult letters, such as Q, Z, J, and X are worth more points. The point distribution is provided here. (Use the English points distribution.)

For this problem, you will be provided with a cell array of words (e.g., all the words from one player in a game). Write a function to calculate the total score for the set of words.
