Javascript alphabetic text validation doesn't prevent numeric values.

Javascript alphabetic text validation doesn't prevent numeric values. This is my code for the validation
		   
    if (/^([a-zA-Z\s]+ [a-zA-Z\s])$/.test(z))
     {
    return (true)
     }
   else{
    event.preventDefault();
    alert("Please insert characters only!")
    return (false)
   }
  	   

Open in new window

I can't find  the mistake.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
