Tell us what’s happening:

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");

Could you be more specific about what your problem is?

You have created the correct data structure for the lookup variable. Now you just need to reference this variable (using val) in such a way that you retrieve the correct value from it and assign it to result.
