The code returns me 30 with the word pie instead of 5


I tought it would return me the correct value. What have i done wrong?
Thanks for the help


score = {"a": 1, "c": 3, "b": 3, "e": 1, "d": 2, "g": 2, 
         "f": 4, "i": 1, "h": 4, "k": 5, "j": 8, "m": 3, 
         "l": 1, "o": 1, "n": 1, "q": 10, "p": 3, "s": 1, 
         "r": 1, "u": 1, "t": 1, "w": 4, "v": 4, "y": 4, 
         "x": 8, "z": 10}

def scrabble_score(word):
    point = 0
    word = word.lower() 
    for l in word:
        lval = 0
        for key in score:
            lval = score.get(key,0)
        point += lval
    return point

here:

for key in score:

you loop over your score dictionary, why?

you can simply loop over word to get the letter, use get() to retrieve letters values, and add this to total?
