Oh well, I might as well give it a shot. I hope nobody has tried map yet?
This is is short and quick, although:
I sure would appreciate some help changing the list "lkw" into a generator
(or something like that) instead...those fancy things are still beyond me
'>>> keywords = ['my','is']
'>>> sentence = 'hi there my name is caleb'
'>>> lsen = sentence.split()
'>>> lkw = 
# Yuck! isn't there a better way to generate copies of the same list in
the "map" below??
'>>> for i in range(len(lsen)):
# Like I said, yuck! For 'map' below, can't we use a generator or
something like that instead??
[['my', 'is'], ['my', 'is'], ['my', 'is'], ['my', 'is'], ['my', 'is'],
'>>> def myfunc(kw,word):
if word in kw:
'>>> ans = map(myfunc,lkw,lsen)
['hi', 'there', '*my*', 'name', '*is*', 'caleb']
'>>> newSentence = ' '.join(ans)
'hi there *my* name *is* caleb'
