Hello,

Could someone tell me, for the code below:

def make_spoonerism(word1,word2):
A=word1[0]
B=word2[0]
C=word1[1:]
D=word2[1:]
return B+C, A+D

print(make_spoonerism(“Codecademy”, “Learn”))

Outputs:
(“Lodecademy”, “Cearn”)

How to I tweak the code so the output reads:
Lodecademy Cearn
(ie. without the brackets and quotation marks)
Thankyou

If you have two strings, how can you combine them into one?
Actually you have three strings, you need a space as well.
Try + … you already used that, even.

Ahhh - thankyou - appreciated.

Only problem with that swap is that it will make the first letter of both words the same.

what am I missing ?
thanks

A swap takes three steps.

# given A and B

A = 6
B = 7

To swap the two values we need to hold one of them temporarily.

C = A
A = B
B = C

The logic is simple. Once A becomes B, how can B become A?

    print (A)    #  7
    print (B)    #  6
