Python | Sort words of sentence in ascending order

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 22 Nov, 2019

Given a sentence, sort it alphabetically in ascending order.

Examples:

Input : to learn programming refer geeksforgeeks
Output : geeksforgeeks learn programming refer to

Input : geeks for geeks
Output : for geeks geeks

We will use built in library function to sort the words of the sentence in ascending order.
Prerequisites:
1. split()
2. sort() in Python
3. join()

  • Split the Sentence in words.
  • Sort the words alphabetically
  • Join the sorted words alphabetically to form a new Sentence.

Below is the implementation of above idea.




# Function to sort the words
# in ascending order
def sortedSentence(Sentence):
      
    # Splitting the Sentence into words
    words = Sentence.split(" ")
      
    # Sorting the words
    words.sort()
      
    # Making new Sentence by 
    # joining the sorted words
    newSentence = " ".join(words)
      
    # Return newSentence
    return newSentence
  
# Driver's Code
  
Sentence = "to learn programming refer geeksforgeeks"
# Print the sortedSentence
print(sortedSentence(Sentence))
  
Sentence = "geeks for geeks"
# Print the sortedSentence
print(sortedSentence(Sentence))

Output:

geeksforgeeks learn programming refer to
for geeks geeks
