Several of the panels in David and Ben Crystal's Shakespeare's Words  (Penguin, 
but also online) deal with grammatical issues of this kind. But the main source 
has to be Norman Blake's 'A Grammar of Shakespeare's Language' (Palgrave 2002), 
much more detailed and informative than anything else around.

I agree that Jonathan Hope's Shakespeare's Grammar is a useful reference for 
this, but Norman Blake's A Grammar of Shakespeare's Language (2002) goes into 
more detail.
