You complicated it a bit. From poLCA manual it needs a formula
cbind(V1,V2,V3)~1
where V1:V3 are names from data
If you put names of your data frame to variable mena
mena <- names(aktDat)
then you can collect all items into a formula by
f <- as.formula(paste("cbind(", paste(mena, collapse = ","), ")~1"))
and
poLCA(f,data)
should work.
