sed option to delete two words within a file

Could someone please help me with the following.

I'm trying to figure out how to delete two words within a specific file using sed.

The two words are directory and named.

I have tried the following:

sed '/[directory|named]/d' sedfile
sed '/[directory named]/d' sedfile

both of these options do not work.....
