9/11 please help code not working


#1

Whenever I save and submit my code, it always prints out "empty", but the program will let me move onto the next lesson anyways. Is there something wrong with my code?

pyg = 'ay'
original = raw_input('Periodically')
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
word = original.lower()
first = word[0]
new_word = word + first + pyg
print original
else:
print 'empty'


#2

Do you put in any input with your raw_input line? That command takes input from the user. If you do not it will not let you get to the fun of printing out your word.


#3

Try changing from
print original
to print new word

that seemed to do the trick.
