The "word" argument is a string, and strings do not have a "remove" method. Perhaps you were thinking of "replace"?

Or you could also convert the string into a list and then you could use "remove", but you'd need to convert it back later.

Either way, you'll probably need a loop since both methods take only scalar (not list) arguments.
