Ending up


can someone tell me what go's wrong

pyg = 'ay'
s = "Charlie"
print s[0]
print s[1:4]
new_word = word + first + pyg
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')
word = raw_input
word = original.lower()
first = word[0]
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha(): 
    print original  
    print 'empty'

Oops, try again.
It looks like new_word contains "hellohay" instead of "ellohay"!

my word was hello



in this line you refer to word which is not assigned yet, place it lower, after you will have word and first already

this part seems to be unnecessary

also not needed, you already have a user input in line

and here you again ask for user input, also unnecessary.

do you want to print original user input or newly created word?
