How do I fix this???
It looks like new_word contains "underwooduay" instead of "nderwooduay"!
Replace this line with your code. pyg = 'ay' original = raw_input('Enter a word:') if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha(): word = original.lower() first = word new_word = word + first + pyg new_word [1:len(new_word)] print original else: print 'empty'
