5.0 out of 5 stars A Credit to Shakespeare, 3 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Shakespeare's Words: A Glossary and Language Companion (Paperback)
An incredibly informative and user-friendly guide, not just to the language of Shakespeare, but to the English Language as a whole in the 16th and early 17th centuries.

Not only does the glossary explain specific words of difficulty it also encorporates the many different ways that Shakespeare, (and many of his contemporaries) used grammar. Crystal includes a short summary of 39 of Shakespeare's plays, and detailed diagrams show the different social networks of the characters in each.

David Crystal has excelled himself yet again, creating a reference for a wide audience; as this like many of his books is written and set out in a style which is both user-friendly and academic.

Definatly worth the money and the time to read. This is a book that you will go back to again and again!

Enough bickering. The so-called spelling mistake looks more like a typo. This is such a petty thing to comment upon. I'm only doing it because, having looked at the comments to the review, I couldn't believe what I read.
