Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Dictionaries Word Count

Bummer with wordcount.py script.


According to task explanation and bummer hint i think i did necessary things. Besides i have checked code in PyCharm and it seemed to produce desired output.

Maybe i am wrong with something, if so then please just notify me that my code is incorrect and i will try to figure it out on my own.

Thanks in advance and regards.

# E.g. word_count("I do not like it Sam I Am") gets back a dictionary like:
# {'i': 2, 'do': 1, 'it': 1, 'sam': 1, 'like': 1, 'not': 1, 'am': 1}
# Lowercase the string to make it easier.

def word_count(string):
    string_split = string.lower().split(" ")

    result_dict = {}
    for word in string_split:
            counter = string_split.count(word)
            result_dict.update({word: counter})

    return result_dict
