Converting to PigLatin with Python

The challenge

Move the first letter of each word to the end of it, then add “ay” to the end of the word. Leave punctuation marks untouched.

Examples

pig_it('Pig latin is cool') # igPay atinlay siay oolcay pig_it('Hello world !') # elloHay orldway !
Code language: Python (python)

Test cases

Test.assert_equals(pig_it('Pig latin is cool'),'igPay atinlay siay oolcay') Test.assert_equals(pig_it('This is my string'),'hisTay siay ymay tringsay')
Code language: Python (python)

How to write the code in Python

def pig_it(text): words = text.split(" ") new_words = [] for word in words: if word.isalpha(): new_word = word[1:] + word[0] + "ay" new_words.append(new_word) else: new_words.append(word) return " ".join(new_words)
Code language: Python (python)
