Pig Latin 2 last tests

Tell us what’s happening:
Hey guys, I’m trying to pass this 2 test, but I can’t:

  • Should handle words where the first vowel comes in the end of the word.
  • Should handle words without vowels.

Could someone help me understand this topics?

:smile: D

Your code so far

function translatePigLatin(str) {
  if (/^([b-df-hj-np-tv-z]){2,}/.test(str.slice(0, 2))) {
    const con = str.slice(0, 2);
    let _str = str.slice(2);
    return _str + con + "ay";
  if (/^([b-df-hj-np-tv-z]){1,}/.test(str.slice(0, 1))) {
    const con = str.slice(0, 1);
    let _str = str.slice(1);
    return _str + con + "ay";
  return str + "way";

Link to the challenge:

Look at your slice methods, you are checking only first two letters. If it is not there you are returning the word plus way

Consider what happens if the word doesn’t have a vowel or the vowel is at the end of the word… It passes first condition as first two letters are consonants and the first two letters are moved to the end of the word.

Try solving this keeping this in consideration

Thanks mate!
I’ve had to refactor the logic, but it’s working now. :smiley:
