Ce cuvinte a inventat Shakespeare?

William+ShakespeareShakespeare a dat dovada de creativitate nu numai prin operele sale ci si prin o colectie impresionanta de cuvinte inventate. Aparent, oricand nu gasea un cuvant care sa ii exprime cu exactitate gandurile…inventa unul.

Peste 1.500 (am gasit chiar si o varianta in care se vorbea de 2.200) de cuvinte au fost inventate de autor, unele dintre ele folosindu-se astazi frecvent in limba engleza. A imprumutat cuvinte din limbi straine, a alaturat termeni deja existenti, a transformat substantive in verbe sau a aplicat prefixe…important e ca datorita lui putem sa spunem pe „nume” la mult mai multe lucruri.
