I generated my code, and the function does work as expected, however, I get an error message that says "Oops, try again. It looks like you printed the correct translation of "python", but make sure to set new_word equal to the slice as well."
And I don't know how to set new_word equal to the slide.
I expected to be able to move on the in the tutorial.
pyg = 'ay' original = raw_input('Enter a word:') if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha(): word = original.lower() new_word = word[1:len(word)] print new_word + word + pyg else: print 'empty'
