is this not a object literal?


you can see we have a variable with my name and role.0:28 -->

Q: should the text not be: this is an object literal instead of a variable ... with my name and role ??

We also have a logTeacher function that takes the teacher, and0:33 prints out their name and role.

const person = { name: 'Andrew Chalkley', role: 'JavaScript Teacher' }

function logTeacher(teacher) { console.log(${teacher.name} - ${teacher.role}); }

That's really a variable, named "person". It's being assigned with an object literal, but "person" is a variable.

The name is the clue, object literals (any literals, for that matter) don't have names.
