Ending up - I am totally lost


Continuing the discussion from Ending Up Error:


"Oops, try again. The value for the original variable looks off, make sure that you entered a word containing only letters.

I don't know what I expect to happen. I am completely lost. Feel like I need to hit the reset button on this exercise, but I am not sure where to begin. I think there are several line of my code that are incorrect.

Can someone share the actual answer? This will be helpful so that I can see what components of my code are wrong.

Replace this line with your code. 
pyg = 'ay'

original = raw_input('Chicken')
word = original.lower()
first = "word"[0]
new_word = first + original + pyg
new_word = new_word[1:len(new_word)]
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
    print original
    print 'empty'
print new_word


first = "word"[0]

Check out this line of code. Notice anything??


word shouldn't be a string on this line.


Instead of adding first + original + pyg try adding first + word + pyg.

Then here,'

Pass word next to the list slice statement instead of new_word and at the end add first and pyg like this,

new_word = word[1:len(new_word)] + first + pyg

This statement should be right after this statement

And your raw_input() Should ask for the user to type in a word so like,

original = raw_input('Please enter a word:')


Print new_word right after this line,

new_word = word[1:len(new_word)] + first + pyg
