Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Disemvowel

Don't use the remove function, the reason being, it only removes the first occurrence in the list

I have checked some post.

known that script below have some problem. solving way have also posted to us.

But sorry that I still do not understand.

as for function , it go for each item in list_word:

so , if list_word = [ 'A', 'A', 'A', 'A'], each 'A' would go though.

I known the fact told me I am false:


the outcome would be: ['A', 'A', 'A']

pls help correct my thought

for i in list_word:
    if i in list('AEIOUaeiou') :
        print (list_word)

def disemvowel(word):
    return word

That's because you are modifying the same list that you are iterating on. You should use a second list where you append the chars that are not vowels, or u could do something like this.

def disemvowel(word):
    string = "AEIOUaeiou"
    for i in string:
        word = word.replace(i, "")
    return word
