I can't find the syntax error.

I can't find the syntax error in the code. Thanks for the help!

//edit this array
$contacts = array(
  ['name' => 'Alena Holligan', 'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com'], 
  ['name' => 'Dave McFarland', 'email' => 'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com'], 
  ['name' => 'Treasure Porth', 'email' => 'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com'], 
  ['name' => 'Andrew Chalkley', 'email' => 'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com'],

echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo "<li>$contacts[0]['name'] : $contacts[0]['email']</li>\n";
echo "<li>$contacts[1]['name'] : $contacts[1]['email']</li>\n";
echo "<li>$contacts[2]['name'] : $contacts[2]['email']</li>\n";
echo "<li>$contacts[3]['name'] : $contacts[3]['email']</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";

Try enclosing your name and email values in curly braces like this:

echo "<li>{$contacts[0]['name']} : {$contacts[0]['email']}</li>\n";
