You often need to intialize a list, sometime with (empty)  = [].
Then after initializing you should do "something" that perhaps will fill
the list (word.append("hello").
Then after do your job, you perhaps need to print it.

But initializing and just print, will do nothing else than initialize
and print the result...

As state before this code more or less like :

a=0
print a
