Could someone help me correct my code?

PygLatin Check Yourself...Some More (Lesson 5)


" File "python", line 7
if len(original) > 0 and .isalpha():
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
"
Dialogue Box error: "Oops, try again. Oops! Did you accidentally delete the variable named original?"


I expected this to check the user input for non-alphabet characters. My syntax isn't correct


print 'Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!'

original = raw_input("Enter a word:")

if len(original) > 0 and .isalpha():
    print original
else:
    print "empty"
