iOS Error Handling in Swift Error Handling Handling Errors

Can someone tell me what's wrong with my code, as I am getting an error:- Your code could not be compiled

I'm not able to understand the reason behind the error!

enum ParserError: Error {
    case emptyDictonary
    case invalidKey
struct Parser {
    var data: [String : String?]?

    func parse() throws {
        guard let parseData = data else {
            throw ParserError.emptyDictonary
        guard parseData.keys.contains("someKey") else {
            throw ParserError.invalidKey
let data: [String : String?]? = ["someKey": nil]
let parser = Parser(data : data)

If you use the "preview" button, it will show you the messages from the complier. In this case:

swift_lint.swift:13:19: error: type 'ParserError' has no member 'emptyDictonary'
            throw ParserError.emptyDictonary
                  ^~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
swift_lint.swift:4:8: note: did you mean 'emptyDictionary'?
  case emptyDictionary

So the issue is the speilling of "emptyDictonary" instead of "emptyDictionary".
