Tips for the CD-ROMs
In this Issue
Welcome to the May 2004 issue of MED Magazine, the webzine of the Macmillan English Dictionaries resource site!
On 1 May 2004 ten new member states joined the European Union. To mark this occasion in the regular new word column we explore vocabulary related to the EU.
The feature article takes a closer look at the language of one of the new member states: Hungarian. In this article you can read about borrowings and false friends between English and Hungarian.
The metaphor series explores the language used when we talk about friendship and the similarities and marked differences between talking about a friend and a lover.
The top tips
follow on from the Language Study article and explain the ways in which
you can search for phrasal verbs on the CD-ROMs, and how the electronic
dictionaries can help create classroom activities.
