Think on my Words, by David Crystal

Subtitled "Exploring Shakespeare's Language" this book does pretty much that, in typical Crystal enthusiastic and engaging style (I've used some of David Crystal's other books when I did my linguistics course, and he's always good value for money). This complements his son's book nicely but is a little more focused on the language used and a little less evangelical about the plays.

Some of the things I highlighted from the book

He also refers to the Shakespeare's Words website which is a companion to one of his other books, and it's a really good resource.

Good book, one to keep and refer to.
