Subject:        Re:  Shakespeare's Pronunciation

I've been consulting Helge Kokeritz's Shakespeare's Pronunciation. I am
mainly interested in word forms and usage (not pronunciation) and it
seems to me the book rests on some questionable assumptions. Can anyone
tell if this book is a reliable source of information; has it been
supplanted or discredited?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

John Robinson
