LINK-1: meaning and examples

Good morning everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you had a nice weekend.

The other day I was in class with some of my students and the word cufflink came up. Therefore, this week we are going to study the word link and words and expressions that use the word link in them. Remember, a link is a connection between two or more people or things.

Today's word is: cufflink

Meaning: one of a pair of small decorative objects used for fastening shirt cuffs together. (In Iberian Spanish the translation would be gemelos.)

Example 1:
Jose Manuel usually wears cufflinks with his shirts.

Example 2:
Jesus was wearing cufflinks that were in the shape of buttons. What is the point of wearning cufflinks if they look like regular buttons?
