Not sure what im missing

Im a little lost. It works in work space if i run:

mop = S()


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

    def __str__(self, pattern):
        out = []
        for i in pattern:
            if i == ".":
            elif i == "_":
        return "-".join(out)   

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

You're really close! But the "__str__" method should have only one parameter ("self"). The "pattern" to use is the one already stored internally in the instance (as "self.pattern").
