For some reason, on 9/11 in the PygLatin exercise the raw_input defaults to the letters “SCT” in the console automatically. After that the console loads for a bit (spinning circle down at the bottom) then fails. I’m not really sure what I am missing here.
Based on the hints in this section I would expect the code to store the value for the variables set, including the new_word variable that has the combination of the previous strings instead of failing. I would also expect the code to continue to print the original raw input to the console.
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 print original else: print 'empty'
