Still not understanding this very well
Someone else tried answering this for me but I still can't get it
def disemvowel(word): for letter in word: if letter.lower() == 'a' or 'e' or 'i' or 'o' or 'u': list(word) word.remove(letter) ''.join(word) return word
A couple things that might help.
This site is great for visualizing your code http://pythontutor.com/
Also, you can go the list route, but I think it is a bit more condensed to keep your word as a string.
I created a new_word. Searched for every letter in that word that is NOT in the string 'aeiou'
Then I added or concatenated the letters that are not vowels into my new_word.
def disemvowel(word): new_word = '' for letter in word: if letter.lower() not in 'aeiou': new_word += letter return new_word
Put this code in python tutor and it might help to see the process in real time.
def disemvowel(word): new_word = '' for letter in word: if letter.lower() not in 'aeiou': new_word += letter print (new_word) disemvowel('gCCeoriiiiige')
