Words, Verona, and William Shakespeare

In mere days I will have the thrill of spending some time in Verona, Italy, location of three of William Shakespeare’s most beloved works: Romeo and Juliet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and my personal favorite, The Taming of the Shrew. Needless to say I was tickled to come upon this excerpt from¬†The History of English in 10 Minutes: Chapter 3, Shakespeare,¬†from The Open University. It’s a fun romp through some of the many words and phrases introduced to our language by the Bard.

Do enjoy!
