Welcome to the Voice of America's "News Words."
Here is a story that has to do with defects, or problems, with cars. Listen for the word that means to take back something: recall.
They had meetings over this defect. They shared complaints over this defect, yet there was no investigation by the government and no recall by General Motors until 10 years later.
Recall. It's a word that means to ask people officially to return something. In our story, there were major problems with some General Motors cars. The man says the U.S. government and the car company took too long to issue recall so the cars could be fixed.
Now when you hear the word "recall," your American English will be good enough to know what this News Word means.
