  1. And this does link with the issue of original pronunciation – which I’m ‘into’ at the moment.
    What Shakespeare sounded like is certainly not “Posh-Shakespeare” which has become the accepted norm. Things like this help remind the ‘Bardosphere’ (or at least the bardolating blogosperers) of an innovative use of the language found in Shakspeare’s texts and of a connection to the lower depths of society lost in the plush seating of expensive theatres.
