This week on Plain English, we talk the series of three large earthquakes that have hit Mexico in the last month, including the strongest earthquake to hit the country in over a century. We also talk about the new features of the iPhone X, including what is possibly the newest word in the English language, “animoji.” In the second half of the program, we review examples of the English phrases “bundled up” and “comb through.”
