Need help with Pig Latin Translator


I keep getting this error message, and do not know what I'm doing wrong:
File "python", line 8
new_word = [1:3] + first + pyg
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

What Syntax is invalid??


What are we taking a slice of?

new_word = word[1:3] + first + pyg


We can write the line to be more dynamic,

    ... word[1:len(new_word)] ...

or simply leave it open-ended,

    ... word[1:] ...


this isn't logical. I feel like the instructions are wrong and doesn't make sense. You can't definie new_word by using new_word. It should say

new_word = word[1:len(word)] + first + pyg
