Hey, I am trying to loop back into the list and find a specific word and to see how many times this specific word appears in the list and then print it out.

Please help,

@AlexanderTarn sorry some kids in class were trying to fork my code I put the real one up though

@Kwolski in the loop where you are checking what word there is make it
for i in range(len(List you have)):
after that with every word
if "Word" == List you have[i]:
hope this helps

Well despite the fact you don't seem to have the correct repl attached, I'll still answer your question

myList = ['a', 'a', 'b', 'c', 'c', 'c', 'd']
specificLetter = 'c'
howMany = 0

for letter in myList:
  if letter == specificLetter:
    howMany += 1


The for letter in myList: just creates a loop that goes through each element in myList. So first it runs the code below it with the vale of letter being 'a', then 'a' again, then 'b', then 'c'...
