Won't Turn List Purple

Hello my fellow coders! As far as I can see, my code is identical to his code, but for some reason the list wont turn purple. It's probably a small spelling error or something, but I can't find it anywhere!
Please help before this drives me crazy...

In the for loop? where it says: myList.length;

Its not misspelled there if thats what you are referring to.

const myList = document.getElementsByTagName('li');

for (let i = 0; i < myList.lenght; i += 1) {
  myList[i].style.color = 'purple';

You spelled it lenght, while it's length. At least that is what your example is saying.
