    William Shakespeare, English dramatist, poet, and actor considered by many to be the greatest dramatist of all time. No writer’s living reputation can compare to that of Shakespeare, whose notable plays included the tragedies Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, and Othello. He was also known for his sonnets. The most common simple sentence in modern English follows a familiar pattern: Subject (S), Verb (V), Object (O). To illustrate this, we'll devise a subject (John), a verb (caught), and an object (the ball). Thus, we have an easily understood sentence, 'John caught the ball.' This is as perfectly an understood sentence in modern English as it was in Shakespeare's day.

In addition, Shakespeare was writing as a dramatic poet and playwright, not as a scholar or historian.

Thou, Thee, Thy, Thine & Ye: Shakespearean English. Almost everyone reads at least one work of Shakespeare in his or her life. Heck, you might be even be studying one of his works now. Shakespeare used a form of archaic English in his works that can be at times confusing, irritating, and downright silly.

Shakespeare’s language is both about the language of an individual writer and about the way English was spoken in the Elizabethan period and the beginning of the Jacobean period. Both these aspects will be dealt with in the present talk. Shakespeare lived in the second half of the sixteenth century and the beginning of the seventeenth century.

A Shakespearian Grammar: An Attempt to Illustrate Some of the Differences between Elizabethan & Modern English. The finest and fullest guide to the peculiarities of Elizabethan syntax, grammar, and prosody, this volume addresses every idiomatic usage found in Shakespeare's works (with additional references to the works of Jonson, Bacon, and others)/5.

Shakespeare’s English would also have been rhotic. Sometimes, words are stressed differently (eg reVENue rather than REVenue as today). Contractions are used fairly freely and there is a preference for proclitic contractions (such as ’tis, ’twill or ’twas) rather than enclitic contractions (preferred today, such as it’s, it’ll).

One can see that Shakespeare absorbed much that was taught in his grammar school, for he had an impressive familiarity with the stories by Latin authors, as is evident when examining his plays and their sources.
