Hello Everyone, 

	I pulled it off. Thank you for the direction of the split function, Mark.

[start code]

words_within = sentence.split()

word_count = 0 

for i in words_within:
	word_count = word_count+1

print "There are", word_count, "words."

[end code]

Haha, Now that I've got my parsing fun over with, I can head back to my
translation. All I need to figure out now is how to apply the code

[start code]

pig_latin = word[1:]+word[0]+"ay"

[end code]

to each word in the string. Any advice on what I should do would be
appreciated. 

Thanks,

~Ryan
