Hey! You may have a sentence that is lower than 12 characters. In this case, you can set the index of the word value to sentence[:10], or a lower number depending on your shortest sentence.

Lowering the number of characters used to hash the sentence value can bring some issues -- two sentences with the same 7,8,9 starting characters will then store/retrieve their value from the same index on the dictionary, that's why it's important to keep the sentence length for hashing as high as you can

any number i use gives the same error

sentenceValue[sentence[:2]] += wordValue[1]

IndexError: string index out of range

Interesting. For debugging it, I would print all your sentences and find if there's an empty one (or a very short one), I think that may be the issue.

Let me know if that works or if you found the issue

i am also facing string index out of range problemm.,,what is the issue

You may have a string that is less than your string length sentence[:2]. I would recommend printing the strings and see if this is the case

i have solved it..it was acctually puncutation problem..in my case...i just handle dot(.) character while giving words as value..

Could you please help me , i'm facing same problem here and i can't handle it , tahnk you.

Is this your error?

IndexError: string index out of range

If so, potential solutions could be:

  • Having a string that is less than your string length sentence[:2]. I would recommend printing the strings and see if this is the case.
  • Punctuation problem, like phabonislam explained above.

If that doesn't solve it, let me know!

It is still giving me an error when the text is > than 12 characters long and the sentance is (when printed through the loop) "You notice a wall of text in twitch chat and your hand instinctively goes to the mouse.", which is the first line in the paragraph. I found that even when you take out the range the same error occurs.

The bug may be in how you are storing your sentences, make sure you print out the sentences as you store them instead of when you retrieve them, hopefully, that'll help you find the issue. If not, let me know if I can help!
