Hey guys was messing around with the console.log commands to see if i can find what happens when pointing at a certain variable.

If i use log to read phoneticLookup i get this error

RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded

I was trying to look up variables in the function to see if they match the intended string.

Like foxtrot should point to Frank and what not.

This usually means you are calling your function inside of your function forever
