How do you pronounce zounds, Milan, housewife and hundreds of other words in Shakespeare's plays? In this ingenious book, Dale Coye has provided a guide to each significant word, line-by line, scene-by-scene, in twenty of Shakespeare's most popular plays. More than a simple pronouncing dictionary, Pronouncing Shakespeare's Words pays attention to scansion, displays alternative pronunciations in different centuries and geographical areas, and provides a simple pronunciation guide requiring no knowledge of lexicographic symbols.
Now available in an affordable paperback edition, Pronouncing Shakespeare's Plays will become a vade mecum (pronounced VAH-day MAY-cum) for actors, students, and general readers of Shakespeare.

This is an incomplete pronunciation book. It does not include all of the plays. You don't know this until you get it home. It would be helpful if the text on this page told the potential buyer that the book only has about half of the plays. Also, it's difficult to follow the author's respelling of words. The pronunciation guide is unclear. Does not include some of the words that I looked up.
