SyntaxError: invalid syntax

It gives me an error on the : in the [1:len(new_word)] i dont really see where i did wrong because i thought this shuld do its stuff. and i dont understand why the ":" is the problem because they used this as example in the lesson. someone any sugestions?

pyg = 'ay'

original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

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


you need to split the variable word and new_word to store their own values as instructed,

word = # a value

new_word = # another value

and this slice should be stored in a variable named new_word but also refer to the variables first and pyg ,

[1:len(new_word)] + first + pyg #should be stored in new_word variable
