code sample (line 25 and 28)

call to the buildASentence function, which is defined on line 9 of the code, is called as makeASentence on line 25 and 28 of code. upon downloading the sample code, it is correct in the .fla file.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This is correct. At the bottom third of page 47, in code lines 25 and 28, the function call "makeASentence" should be "buildASentence". The downloaded source code is correct, as are all other text references to the buildASentence funciton and "build_a_sentence.fla" file.

the code, line 9, says: function buildASentence(... and when the function is called in lines 25 and 28, it says: var sallySays:String = makeASentence(... Now, that doesn't work properly!
