what if the speaker can have general communication, and he/she is able to grasp maybe about 1/2 of the content in the media?

Is feeling a sting at the back of eyes common usage? I like the non-literal sense to these phrases.

comment What is a “review” in this context?
@JohnLawler I'm still kind of confused of what a review here in this context means. The definition states that it is A report or essay giving a critical estimate of a work or performance, but in this article it is saying that George Mammen’s review is finding that moderate exercise can actually prevent episodes of depression in the long term. There isn't any estmating of any work or performance.

@EdwinAshworth Oh, it didn't occur to me, I thought work or performance was connected with something artistic like books, plays, or movies.
