Comment:        Re: SHK 11.1735 Re: Use of Dialect

Owen Glendower in Henry IV, 1, 3.1, who, in his counsel with Hotspur
makes much of his ability to speak English "lord, as well as you."
Percy, for his part, argues that "no man speaks better Welsh."  There is
room for an accent on Glendower's part, but the role need not be played
that way.  His English accent could be flawless, although he does speak
Welsh later in the same scene.
