In this Issue
Welcome to the 13th issue of MED Magazine, the free webzine of the Macmillan English Dictionaries resource site!
Last month the webzine celebrated its first birthday and readers from all over the world have contacted us to wish MED Magazine a happy birthday. You can read a selection of these greetings in this issue.
We introduce two new features in the first issue of the second year of MED Magazine. The new index page lists all the articles that have been published in the magazine in the last year and will help you to find the specific topics, articles and authors you are interested in.
The second new feature is a brand-new series on metaphor. The first article explores the metaphors we use when we talk about love.
The feature article this month looks at metaphor and figures of speech from a different angle and discusses the difficulties language learners face in understanding and using figures of speech.
Age is the topic of the new word column in this issue. The article looks at new words that have emerged as a result of lifestyle changes.
