Tips for the CD-ROMs
In this Issue
Welcome to the July issue of the MED Magazine, the monthly
webzine of the Macmillan English Dictionaries resource
In this month's feature
article, we take a look at word formation in English. The article
describes how new words are created either by adding or taking away from
already existing ones.
The new word
column departs from single words and looks at new idiomatic expressions
explaining both their meanings and background.
False friends between French and English are the focus
of the Language Interference
series. The article explores the mutual borrowing of words between the
two languages and highlights the areas that are especially troublesome
for the language learner.
The top tips show how you can combine the SoundSearch function of the Macmillan English Dictionary with intensive listening activities.
In this issue we introduce a new feature to the magazine.
