Hi Michael, For the removal of the non-alphabetics for common_words, the easiest apparent way to deal with this would be to just replace all occurrences of them with spaces instead of deleting them, but then this could also cause issues with results (e.g. It's -> It s with s being treated as a word, while in deletion It's -> Its). With the addition to the assignment in regards to the common-garden being treated as common garden the first approach appears to be better, so is the resulting error that comes with that (e.g. having lone s's or other nonsense characters after punctuation treated as words) acceptable, or do we need to find a way to deal with all cases of separate punctuation? Thanks
