Here’s what Shakespeare’s plays sounded like with their original English accent…

In this short documentary, linguist David Crystal and his son, actor Ben Crystal, look at the differences between English pronunciation now and how it was spoken 400 years ago. They answer the most basic question you probably have right now — How do you know what it sounded like back then? — and they discuss the value of performing Shakespeare’s plays in the original accent.


“The uneasy suspicion that if you heard yourself talking, you would sound like an asshole.” — (via magnificentruin)
