Punctuation marks will mess up your program if you are not careful. You will need to check for punctuation,
save the punctuation, perform the translation, and then put the punctuation mark back. You can check if
the last character of a word is a punctuation mark using:
1 if word[-1] in “.?!,;:”:
2 print “The last character is a punctuation mark!!”
The last character can be trimmed using the string.rstrip() method.
Your program should take input from the user (written in SMS slang) and convert it into the King’s English.
Your program should make use of a dictionary. Show your completed program to the TA and demonstrate
that it works.
Example Output:
Enter message to translate: y r u l8?
Message in the King’s English: why are you late?
