R. Padgett BS: Shakespeare plays in Elizabethan English (58* d) RE: BS: Shakespeare plays in Elizabethan English 19 Jul 05


Was listening to the radio this am and the point made was that much of the comedy and rhyme used by Shakespeare in his writings no longer works due to the change of pronounciation

In fact turns out as gobbledegook

A change to the original more akin to Brum and West Country should restore some of the rhymes etc and perhaps unearth the comedy etc

Good luck to them all

My native Barnsley accent is available to anyone who wishes broad Yorkshire authenticity!!
