class Letter:
    def __init__(self, pattern=None):
        self.pattern = pattern
    def __str__(self):
        code = []
        translate = ""
        for morse in self.pattern:
            if morse == ".":
            elif morse == "_":
        translate = code.join("-")
        return translate

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