I'm sure we've all been through a phase where we were interested in what words would sound like backwards, or how to spell them backwards. With software like Audacity, you can record yourself saying things and play them backwards to see. In this assignment you'll use the Python string manipulation functions to reverse a word.

Your Task

Your task is to produce a program to reverse words entered by the user. Your program should:

  1. ask the user for a word
  2. reverse the word and print the result
  3. be clear and easy to use

The minimum output is the reversed word, but you can add extra text to make your program easier to understand. You could capitalise the first letter, or if you fancy a challenge, you could test whether a word was a palindrome or try to create an anagram instead!
