As is here, this code should raise a syntax error message like
SyntaxError: EOL while scanning string literal

On the right side of *Enter a word* you have to use the same single
quote "'" as that on the left side.
Besides this, the code must work assigning your string input to variable
The outer "()" are unnecessary but cause no hurt.
