Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Disemvowel

how to convert the list back to string?

I am returning the word list . I do not know how to change it back to a single string

disemvowel.py
def disemvowel(word):
    vowels = ['a','A','e','E','i','I','o','O','u','U'] 
    endOList = vowels.index('U')
    remvow = 0
    wordlist=list(word)
    while True :
        while True :
            try:
                wordlist.remove(vowels[remvow])
            except ValueError :
                break
        remvow += 1 
        if remvow > endOList :
            break

Hi. You can use JOIN method. In this case

word = "".join(wordlist)

Try this:

def disemvowel(word):
    vowels = ('a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u', 'A', 'E', 'I', 'O', 'U')
    return ''.join([letter for letter in word if letter not in vowels])

If your not familiar with this syntax check out this course Python Comprehensions

word = "".join(wordlist) will this work?
