Subject: 16.1637 Timon
Comment: Re: SHK 16.1637 Timon
On pronunciation of Timon, I suggest that it is similar to Simon; that
is, with a long 'i' with the accent on the first syllable, 'Ti'. I
believe the word would need a double 'm' to become Tim mon.
This as I see it is modern English usage, but how Shakespeare pronounced
it I know not.
