Subject:        Shakespearian/Shakespearean

Dear Colleagues,

Is there a consensus as to the preferred spelling of "Shakespearian" or
"Shakespearean"?  The former seems to accord with "Chaucerian,"
"Dickensian," "Spenserian," etc. but I seem to be seeing more spellings
of "Shakespearean" (e.g. the recent Cambridge Companion to Shakespearean
Comedy).  What do listmembers think?
