Can't get text color to work

I'm using workspaces and Chrome Version 57.0.2987.98 (64-bit)

const myList = document.getElementsByTagName('li');

for (let i = 0; i < myList.lenght; i += 1) {
  myList[i].style.color = 'purple';

const errorNotPurple = document.querySelectorAll('.error-not-purple');

for (let i = 0; i < errorNotPurple.lenght; i += 1) {
  errorNotPurple[i].style.color = 'red';
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>JavaScript and the DOM</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css">
    <h1 id="myHeading">JavaScript and the DOM</h1>
    <p>Making a web page interactive</p>
<p>Things that are purple:</p>
  <li class="error-not-purple">oranges</li>
  <li class="error-not-purple">fire trucks</li>
  <li class="error-not-purple">snow</li>
    <script src="app.js"></script>

You've spelt length wrong twice

See if that fixes it?

i < errorNotPurple.lenght; i += 1) {
