    Cool multi-month

    Hi,

    In the following passage: "The two are organizing a multimonth horse race through north Africa in the name of peace" (CNN Today) (About Bin Laden's son)

    Does multimonth means something that will last several months? Why doesn't it appear in any dictionary? Even this text corrector doesn't accept this word!

    Yes, 'multi-month' means more than one month in duration. Example: 'The yen hit a new multi-month high against the euro, while it reversed its recent losses versus the British pound and Australian dollar.'
