Shakespearean Language

As we embark on our journey into the reading of the play “Much Ado About Nothing” by William Shakespeare you may encounter the fact that Shakespeare has invented more than 1,500 words. Some of those words are still being used today. On this post there is a link to an article that details 20 words that Shakespeare invented that we still use on a daily basis. The second link is a short guide to the Shakespearean language that you are going to find in the play.

Happy reading!
