No errors! But doesn't run!

String noun = console.readLine("Enter a noun: ");

    console.printf("That language is not allowed.Exiting.\n\n");

This does compile without error but doesn't execute the if condition when i type "dork" as the noun.

String noun=console.readLine("Enter a Noun :  ");
   console.printf("This kind of lang is not allowed! Exiting \n\n");

The problem here is that you were getting the input in name but were checking the name element thats why it was not executing the way you expected

You are giving 2 different var names: noun and name.

Can you please paste the absolutely full code?

you may have forgot to save before running.
