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?
