Words from Shakespearean Times



bookworm483554Bookworm483554 on 07/20/2009

WordsfromShakespeareanTimes Photo The English language has totally changed since Shakespeare wrote his plays.
For this reason most of us have trouble reading what he wrote unless the text is accompanied by explanatory notes.
I have chosen ten expressions from his plays. Can you match these expressions with their meanings in contemporary English ?
I have tried to choose picturesque expressions of varying difficulties.

Thanks for taking my quiz.

Good quiz! Seems to be somewhat alphabetical. Does this mean there will be more?
