The compliler cant find the lenght() method!

Why the compiler can't find the lenght() method? Here is my code: public int getRemainingChars(){ return MAX_TWEET_CHARS - mText.lenght(); }

Tweet.java
public class Tweet {
  private String mText;
  public static final int MAX_TWEET_CHARS = 140;

  public Tweet(String text) {
    mText = text;
  }

  public String getText() {
    return mText;
  }

  public int getRemainingChars(){
    return MAX_TWEET_CHARS - mText.lenght();
  }

}

lenght is a typo. The correct spelling of the word is length.
