Shakespeare in its original 16th century accent
David Crystal, the sex symbol of linguistics!
Can’t reblog this too many times!
This is very important. Especially for us Americans who often feel inferior about our accents performing Shakespeare. We need to remember that Shakespeare’s English sounded much closer to Appalachian American English than it did to modern RP British English.
it’s also interesting that the son linguist says of the OP pronunciations that it connects you with your body more because i remember this post talking about how shakespeare is supposed to get down into your bones.
i can also attest to what he says about making eye contact with your audience when you’re giving the plays in daylight; in tenth grade i gave a performance of mercutio’s “queen mab” monologue to a crowd of, like, 4-7 year olds instead of writing a five page paper and yes, the whole point is that you connect to your audience with shakespeare — by my fourth run through of the monologue, i had little kids coming up into my performance space and moving with me.
they didn’t understand what the hell i was saying, but they knew because i was moving with the monologue that it was something worth paying attention to.
I love how it says fan when he is obviously not a fan at all.

We sure don’t have a lot of THOSE now do we?
Wake me when they do something that’s not the Four Major White people.
or John Stewart
hell I’ll even settle for the other white guy, Aquaman (I may be a fan of Aquaman but I’d pass him for Black Panther oriented show any day or Vixen or Static. Mostly static and Vixen)
Give me Jamie as Blue Beetle Movie.
I think WB forgot there are DC characters besides Batman and Superman. And they only just remembered Superman.
And then they promptly forgot characters can exist without being attached at Batman’s hip.
'just you and me against the world' more like 'just you and me against a wall' am i right
ugh my mom wants to buy me dresses
i don’t mind them sometimes
but half the time she might as well by my brother a dress
Alright, I keep seeing this post everywhere. I want all of my followers to know that this information IS NOT CORRECT. Restless leg syndrome is not just tapping your feet. RLS is either feeling like you have to move, feeling pins and needles randomly, and sometimes an itchy, crawly feeling. And when I say feeling like you have to move, I mean your joints ache, your muscles clench, you are miserable unless you are at least walking or moving.
Tl;dr. This info is wrong. It needs to stop spreading.
i kind of want to make a bertholdt hoover blog…
