HELP 10/11 My code Won't Work


#1

here is my code:
pyg = 'ay'
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
print original
word=original.lower()
first=word[0]
new_word=word+first+pyg
new_word=[1:len(new_word)]
else:
print 'empty'

It keeps saying
File "python", line 10
new_word=[1:len(new_word)]
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I don't get it


#2

see below for correct answer
pyg = 'ay'
new_word="teru"
print new_word[1:len(new_word)]
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
word=original.lower()
first=word[0]
new_word=word+first+pyg

new_word=new_word[1:]
print new_word

else:
print 'empty'
