When I run the tests with your code, I see this in the console:

phoneticLookup("foxtrot") should equal the string Frank

Does your code return Frank ?
Remember - capitalisation is important.

Hello @sofipay7869 !
I guess the problem in your code is the capitalisation. You wrote “frank instead of “Frank”.
