Subject: 10.2112 The Language of Shakespeare
Comment: Re: SHK 10.2112 The Language of Shakespeare
The best place to start is Charles Barber's Early Modern English (2nd ed
1997: Edinburgh). There's a collection of reprinted articles on
Shakespeare's language edited by Vivian Salmon and Edwina Burness:
Reader in the Language of Shakespearean Drama (1986[?] John Benjamins).
Briefer coverage of most of the topics in Barber can be found in my
chapter 'Shakespeare's "natiue Englishe"' in David Scott Kastan (ed)
Companion to Shakespeare (1998 Blackwell). hope you enjoy your work!
