My add item button and Remove item button are not working.

Can someone please take a look at my code that why my buttons are not workings?

const toggleList = document.getElementById('toggleList');
const listDiv = document.querySelector('.list');
const descriptionInput = document.querySelector('input.description');
const descriptionP = document.querySelector('p.description');
const descriptionButton = document.querySelector('button.description');
const listUl = listDiv. querySelector('ul');
const addItemInput = document.querySelector('input.addItemInput');
const addItemButton = document.querySelector('button.addItemButton');
const removeItemButton = document.querySelector('button.removeItemButton');

listUl.addEventList('click', (event) => {
  if(event.target.tagName == 'BUTTON'){
   let li= event.target;
    let ul= li.parentNode;
    ul.removeChild('li');

  }
});           

toggleList.addEventListener('click', () => {
  if (listDiv.style.display == 'none') {
    toggleList.textContent = 'Hide list';
    listDiv.style.display = 'block';
  } else {
    toggleList.textContent = 'Show list';                        
    listDiv.style.display = 'none';
  }                         
});

descriptionButton.addEventListener('click', () => {
  descriptionP.innerHTML = descriptionInput.value + ':';
  descriptionInput.value = '';
});

addItemButton.addEventListener('click', () => {
  let ul = document.getElementsByTagName('ul')[0];
  let li = document.createElement('li');
  li.textContent = addItemInput.value;
  ul.appendChild(li);
  addItemInput.value = '';
});

removeItemButton.addEventListener('click', () => {
  let ul = document.getElementsByTagName('ul')[0];
  let li = document.querySelector('li:last-child');
  ul.removeChild(li);
});

Line 11 contains a reference to a non-existing function:

listUl.addEventList('click', (event) => {

But you probably intended it to be:

listUl.addEventListener('click', (event) => {

Thanks Parker, what a crazy mistake.
