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
on the last line, it isnt suposed to take from the index 1 to the len(new_word)-1? i tried the code with "len(new_word)" and "len(new_word)+1" to "fix" what i though was necesary, but in both ways i got the same result: its ok!!!. someone could explain it please? thanks!!!
