Why does it think v is a list object?
Am I overcomplicating this?
def disemvowel(word): vowels = ['a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u'] word = list(word) for v in vowels: while (v in word.lower()): print v try: word.remove(v.upper()) except ValueError: pass try: word.remove(v.lower()) except ValueError: pass return "".join(word) def remove_word(word, letter) word = list(word) try: word.remove(letter) except ValueError: pass return word

it is saying word is a list object (which it is), not v.

Here is better way of your code
def disemvowel(word): vowels = ['a','e','i','o','u', 'A','E','I','O','U']
ret_word =  for i in word : if i not in vowels: ret_word.append(i) return ''.join(ret_word)
