The English Shakespeare wrote and spoke is slightly different to the language we use today.
Here are some of the common words he used and their meanings:
- morrow - day
- fare thee well - goodbye
- aye/yea - yes
- nay - no
- prithee/pray - please
- grammarcy - thank you
And here's how to curse someone in Shakespeare's time:
- Thou loggerheaded maggot-pie!
- Thou swag-bellied pignut!
- Thou hell-hated ratsbane!
- Thou urchin-snouted foot-licker!
- Thou beetle-headed canker-blossom!
