I did what you said to do but it still has an error.
here is the modified code:
pyg = 'ay'
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
word = original.lower()
first = word
new_word = word[1:len(new_word)]
Here is the error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 8, in
NameError: name 'new_word' is not defined
