You know that moment when you are writing a series of world renowned plays that will continue to be popular even 400 year after your death and you just don't have that perfect word to seal the deal. Well, seems Shakespeare had the same problem. Throughout his career he invented more than 1700 common words to deliver the perfect descriptions to his audiences. He even created the name Olivia in his play Twelfth Night that WCA will be performing at the end of March, 2017.
Here are 10 words Shakespeare birthed to the world:
1) Addiction (Othello)
2) Arch-Villain (Timon of Athens)
3) Assassination (Macbeth)
4) Bedazzled (Taming of the Shrew)
5) Belongings (Measure for Measure)
6) Eventful (As You Like It)
7) Eyeball (The Tempest)
8) Fashionable (Troilus and Cressida)
9) Manager (A Midsummer Night's Dream)
10) Swagger (Henry V)
