“While most people regularly use about 2,000 words, Shakespeare used more than 25,000 in his writing.”
I got this from the Shakespeare for Kids page at the Folger Library. I also got the fun pic and word activity below. The picture is called Prodigiorum, which is the plural form of prodigium, which is an omen, or prophetic sign. What the heck?
Do you know what these words mean? Try to guess and post the definitions in the comments.
- Addle egg
- Hugger mugger
- Hurly burly
- Skimble skamble
