In this series we’re asking teachers, authors, linguists, and anybody else who would like to contribute, to share a personal anecdote about a word (or phrase) they feel strongly about: a word that has a personal meaning to them.
Every fortnight, a guest author will share a story – funny, tragic or heart-warming – about how one word changed or influenced their life.
Editor-in-Chief Michael Rundell will be the first person to tell his story tomorrow, so stay tuned to find out which word Michael has chosen!
Stories behind Words is part of our 2013 It’s Your English! campaign which promotes easy accessibility and interactive learning for everyone, with Macmillan Dictionary offering free tools such as language games and widgets for browsers and websites. As part of this campaign we’re celebrating our move from print to online, 10 years of BuzzWords and our crowdsourced Open Dictionary.Email this Post
