class Letter:
    def __init__(self, pattern=None):
        self.pattern = pattern

    def __str__ (self) # missing semi-colon
                                  #  add a list here
        for item in pattern: # should be self.pattern
            if item == ".":
                item = "dot" # append 'dot ' to list
            else:
                item = "-" # if underscore (change to an underscore. you have a hyphen), append 'dash' to list
        return self.pattern # use a hyphen to join list

class S(Letter):
    def __init__(self):
        pattern = ['.', '.', '.']
        super().__init__(pattern)

that very helpful Thanks Clayton
