Please, someone check my code and help me figure out why it doesn't work!
I know I could have coded it in an easier way but I am still trying to figure out why it doesn't work here.
def disemvowel(word): list = word.split() for letter in list: while True: try: list.remove("aeiouAEIOU") except ValueError: pass break word = " ".join(list) return word
When you split the list in your code, it is not returning a list of letter but a list of words.. so if you were to input "apples" as the word parameter your list variable would be ['apples'].
The list.remove("aeiouAEIOU") only works if the word parameter is equal to "aeiouAEIOU"
def disemvowel(word): letter_list = list(word) vowels = ['a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u', 'A', 'E', 'I', 'O', 'U'] for letter in letter_list: if letter in vowels: letter_list.remove(letter) return ''.join(letter_list)
