Stocks: Buy or sell shares. We hear the mask market is hot right now.

Favors: You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. Popular among chimpanzees.

Insults: They call you a "@#*$%!". You call them a "$£%#!". Congratulations, you may now kiss the bride.

This month, the World Trade Organization appointed Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as Director-General, the first African to lead the organization.
