Shakespeare conspiracy theorists might still wonder who the real playwright was, but we do know what he would’ve sounded like. Linguist David Crystal and his son, actor Ben Crystal, demonstrate the original pronunciation of the Bard’s best. Bonus: An interview with Ben on the research behind the pronunciation.
This. Is. So. Cool.
THIS IS ESSENTIAL WATCHING FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN SHAKESPEARE.
I work with American actors, many of whom feel ashamed of their accents when they perform Shakespeare, and so they often attempt to put on a Received Pronunciation (RP) British accent when they speak their lines. I make a point of telling them that Shakespeare’s English sounded nothing like RP, and that the dialect that was spoken to perform his plays sounded much closer to traditional American Appalachian than to anything you’d hear on the BBC. So if you speak a dialect of English that has an ending R, and you feel obligated to drop it when you perform the Bard’s works, just remember — Shakespeare voiced his Rs, and so can you!
This is fabulous. I am enamoured of language.
Couldn’t find my dog anywhere until I noticed that there was something wrong with the couch
