Subject:        Pronunciation.

I've been trying for years, on an off, to find an update to Fausto
Cercignani's 1981 book about the original pronunciation of Shakespeare's
language in the plays. So far I've not heard of anyone doing new work.
The Globe in Southwark wants to develop this kind of study, or at least
try some fresh experiments in the sound of the language. Is anyone out
there working on this, or knows anybody else who is?

Andy Gurr.
