I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong here. I clicked the link for a hint but it looks identical to what I already have. Thank you in advance!

Your code so far


// Setup
function phoneticLookup(val) {
  var result = "";

  // Only change code below this line
  var lookup = {
    "alpha": "Adams",
    "bravo": "Boston",
    "charlie": "Chicago",
    "delta": "Denver",
    "echo": "Easy",
    "foxtrot": "Frank"
  }

  // Only change code above this line
  return result;
}

// Change this value to test
phoneticLookup("charlie");

You’re missing this part of the example:

alpha[value]; // "Y"

At the moment in your code there is not even a relation between val, result and lookup ^^


#3

Look at two things:

var result = "";

return result;

No matter what your function does,. it currently always returns an empty string.
