About the book:

David Crystal & Ben Crystal Shakespeare's Words is the definitive resource for anybody with an interest in Shakespeare's language, an essential reference work for the Shakespearean scholar or actor but equally accessible for students new to Shakespeare's vocabulary. As a glossary, it boasts almost 14,000 words and over 22,000 entries in total, using line-referenced quotations at every opportunity to convey the meaning of each word in context. As a language companion, it is both innovative and invaluable. There is a list of the most frequently encountered words and a fascinating series of panels throughout the book in which words specific to a particular field are listed and issues of grammar and language are discussed and explained. There are also numerous appendices, including a synopsis for each play and a series of informative diagrams to represent how the characters of each play interact.
