Hi this line

if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha() word = original.lower() first = wordl[0]:

this part

word = original.lower() first = wordl[0]

you wrote wordl[0] instead of word[0] and it should be inside the if statement like that

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