English In Use – ‘Just Call Us Mr And Mrs Bishop

A selection of headlines from stories in the news. They use English as a way that you might think is intended to confuse but it’s all perfectly clear to the native speaker.

The Daily Mail headline of ‘Just Call Us Mr And Mrs Bishop’ tells the story perfectly – Alison White, newly appointed Bishop of Hull and her husband Frank, Bishop of Newcastle, are the country’s first husband and wife bishops.
