I'd look at which python is actually running (sys.version):

Python 3.4.0 (default, Apr 11 2014, 13:05:11)
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> word = (input('enter a word '))
enter a word test
 >>>
emile at emile-OptiPlex-9010:~$ python
Python 2.7.6 (default, Mar 22 2014, 22:59:56)
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> word = (input('enter a word '))
enter a word test
Traceback (most recent call last):

   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'test' is not defined
