How Shakespearean are you?

Oct 10, 2011 | Language

Having read a fascinating article from the Oxford University Press, I put a bit of my previous blog post into their handy ‘Shakespearometer’ (my word – sorry OUP!) to see how it stood up to the grammar and spelling of the Bard. I was very pleased to see that my English was “83% Shakespearean” and told “The waters of the Avon almost lap at your feet.” Chuffed.

Try it yourself.
