I'm just guessing, but are those parenthesis pairs needed?
Maybe remove them?  I don't know if quoting the patterns, as you
did in your fix, works properly.

Adding the leading open paren, which you only did on line 23,
doesn't seem right.  The close paren has significance in a case
statement and should not be matched with an open paren.

Replace "have" with "type"?
