I want my Python function to split a sentence (input) and store each word in a list. My current code splits the sentence, but does not store the words as a list. How do I do that?
def split_line(text): # split the text words = text.split() # for each word in the line: for word in words: # print the word print(words)
This should be enough to store each word in a list.
words is already a list of the words from the sentence, so there is no need for the loop.
Second, it might be a typo, but you have your loop a little messed up. If you really did want to use append, it would be:
Splits the string in
text on any consecutive runs of whitespace.
words = text.split()
Split the string in
text on delimiter:
words = text.split(",")
The words variable will be a
list and contain the words from
text split on the delimiter.
