Confused on this syntax error.

class Name

attr_reader(:title, :first, :middle, :Last)
attr_writer(:title)



def initialize(title, first, middle, last)
     @title = title
     @first = first
     @middle = middle
     @last = last
end
end

name = Name.new ("Mr", "Ally", "", "Cuccurullo")

puts name.title = " " +
     name.first + " " +
     name.middle+ " " +
     name.last

     puts "title: #{name.title} "
     name.title = "dr"
     puts "title: #{name.title} "

its telling me on line rb:16 unexpected ',' expecting end-of-input. What does that mean?

Hello! Can you try this? I think this is what you want:

class Name
    attr_reader :title, :first, :middle, :last
    attr_writer :title
    def initialize(title, first, middle, last)
        @title = title
        @first = first
        @middle = middle
        @last = last 
    end
end

name = Name.new ("Mr", "Ally", "", "Cuccurullo")

puts name.title + " " +
     name.first + " " +
     name.middle + " " +
     name.last

puts "title: #{name.title} "
name.title = "dr"
puts "title: #{name.title} "

Hi Alphonse,

Try changing your ':Last' variable to :last in the attr_reader :)
