Try this..

This is the javascript that i have used and its working.Try with this

function checkregex() {
            if (!form1.TextBox1.value.match(/^[a-zA-Z ]+$/) && form1.TextBox1.value != "") {
                form1.TextBox1.value = "";
                alert("Please Enter only alphabets in text");

here is the regexx to validate one or 2 words with a whitespace between them

(/^[a-zA-Z0-9]+ ?([a-zA-Z0-9]+$){1}/)

Note : you cannot have a whitespace at the end if it is only one word
Try and let me know u got it or not

THis will check that the string contains only alphabet and space. It will not make sure "Maximum two words and one space is allow between them" condition
you can acheive this task by using below regExp

([A-Za-z])+( [A-Za-z]+)

^ : start of string
[A-Za-z\s]+ : match one or more occurrences of alphabets (both upper and lower case) and spaces
$ : end of string
This regular expression will only match strings that consist of alphabets and spaces, with no other characters allowed.

Really? 11 years after the question was asked? Try sticking to questions a bit more recent.
