I'm not 100 percent sure about the hyphen; but, there definitely should have been a dash after "trapdoor" to mark the end of that interrupting clause.

comment Is there a known reason that English has so many short words?
I am hardly a linguistic; but, I suspect the majority of words in any natural spoken language are no more than two syllables, because human beings are lazy.

comment Why do we say “Japan earthquake” and not “Japanese earthquake”?
I think we would normally say "earthquake in Japan", rather than "Japanese earthquake"; I suspect "Japan earthquake" is just newswriting shorthand for that phrase, rather than using a different, more awkward phrase.
