Python – Sequence Assignment to Words
  • Last Updated : 05 Sep, 2020

Given a String of words, assign index to each word.

Input : test_str = ‘geekforgeeks is best’
Output : {0: ‘geekforgeeks’, 1: ‘is’, 2: ‘best’}
Explanation : Index assigned to each word.

Input : test_str = ‘geekforgeeks best’
Output : {0: ‘geekforgeeks’, 1: ‘best’}
Explanation : Index assigned to each word.

Method #1 : Using enumerate() + dict() + split()

In this, we first perform task of split() and then add index component to map each word with index using enumerate().

# Using split() + enumerate() + dict()
  
# initializing string
test_str = 'geekforgeeks is best for geeks'
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# using dict() to convert result in idx:word manner 
res = dict(enumerate(test_str.split()))
      
# printing result 
print("The Assigned Sequence : " + str(res))

Output

The original string is : geekforgeeks is best for geeks
The Assigned Sequence : {0: 'geekforgeeks', 1: 'is', 2: 'best', 3: 'for', 4: 'geeks'}

Method #2 : Using zip() + count() + dict()

In this, the count() component renders the index logic and pairing of each word to index is done using zip().

print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# using dict() to convert result in idx:word manner 
# count() from itertools used for this task
res = dict(zip(count(), test_str.split()))
      
# printing result 
print("The Assigned Sequence : " + str(res))

Output

The original string is : geekforgeeks is best for geeks
The Assigned Sequence : {0: 'geekforgeeks', 1: 'is', 2: 'best', 3: 'for', 4: 'geeks'}
