dont know why it wont work

pyg = 'ay'
original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

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


This needs to be assigned back on itself, and also needs an object to slice.

new_word = new_word[1:len(new_word)]


ohhh thanks helps tons


how do i make it so it can do more than one word
