Bill Grantham says for clues to the pronunciation of "Macbeth." In scene one of
the play, "Macbeth" is rhymed with "heath." Of course, that doesn't help much
because we don't know how a Londoner in the early 17th century pronounced
"heath." Would the influx of Scots have influenced the actors' pronunciation?
Would they have assumed Scots accents? How did a 17th century Scot pronounce
"heath"?
 
Yours, Bill

May I suggest that Roger Gross would be doing us all a service if he would
indeed publish his list of the fifty S'n names most often mispronounced!
 
Thanks in advance,

OK, Roger Gross, you have aroused my curiosity: in what way does Barton
misdefine iambic pentameter?  He carelessly [or not?] does not include any talk
of iambs or feet, but surely he's got the gist of it right?
