In this Issue

Welcome to the April 2004 issue of MED Magazine, the webzine of the Macmillan English Dictionaries resource site!

The Baftas, Golden Globes and Oscars are over for another year. To mark the end of the awards season, we take a look at neologisms from the world of television and entertainment.

In the feature article this month, author, consultant and teacher trainer Adrian Underhill investigates the latest trends in English Language Teaching.

The metaphor series in this issue explores the language we use about one of our most complex emotions: anger.

This month the Language Study article discusses aspects of pronunciation: phonetic transcriptions, sounds, word stress and word linking.

In the top tips column you can find out how the SoundSearch facility of the CD-ROMs can help students with their pronunciation.
