Subject:        Shakespeare's Words
 
This is a reply to Jeff Myers in the "funny you should ask" category! Someone
just rang up the Folger asking about words contributed by Shakespeare.  We
found a partial list of close to 500 words in Michael Macrone's book "Brush Up
Your Shakespeare!" (Harper, 1990) on pp.193-203. It's not complete but handy.

In reply  to Jeff Myers question about words coined or first used by
Shakespeare, I've asked that same question to the librarians at the Folger
library, and they seem to think that there is no such book with such a list. Is
there a way for the OED to search for a list and if so how do those of us
without the CD ROM get the list?
 
In reply to Peter Herman's request for Shakespeare CD ROMS, I've used the
WordCruncher CD ROM for several years with great success.  I've gotten some
great papers from High School students with it.

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0719 Qs: CD ROMs
 
CDRoms are being developed for teaching Shakespeare at Universities all over
the US.  Unfortunately, most are designed to run on Macs, but hopefully less
expensive IBM versions will come available.  Check software companies through
the local computer store.  I'm finding that most of my students far prefer
interacting with the Cd's more than they like to look at "comic books."
 
Many of the CD's offer what every excellent teacher would like to offer their
students:  variety of presentation, open ended learning, some control over the
process, guarenteed success and motivation, and some of the right answers.  The
down side is that it involves technology, money, and time sitting in front of a
screen instead of up on the boards where the bard was meant to be explored.
