I am a beginner in Python and am not able to use a list element for
regular expression, substitutions.
list1 = [ 'a', 'o' ]
list2 = ['star', 'day', 'work', 'hello']
Suppose that I want to substitute the vowels from list2 that are in
list1, into for example 'u'.
In my substitution, I should use the elements in list1 as a variable.
I thought about:
for x in list1:
for y in list2:
if x in y:
z = re.sub(x, 'u', y)
but this does not work
