My facsimile of the F1 text reads "He rings him by the ears" at TLN
584.  My copies of the Cambridge 3, Oxford and Riverside 2 all concur.
But then again, I've never "endured military service."  Or maybe I'm
just reading the scene dishonestly.

Cheers,
Sean.

In all this discussion over the final scene of "The Shrew", people might
want to consider looking at Fletcher's "The Woman's Prize or the Tamer
Tam'd"  to my knowledge the only contemporary answer to Kate's final
speech.
