A comparative reference guide to Shakespeares grammar, based on a complete revision of an extremely elderly but still much-cited volume, Abbotts Shakespearean Grammar, first published in 1869 and still regarded by default as an essential component of Shakespeare research. This volume meets the identified need for an authoritative and systematic grammar of Shakespeare which takes account both of current linguistic developments and of the current state of knowledge about Early Modern English and enable editors and readers both to understand and to contextualise Shakespeares use and manipulation of language, i.e. to locate it in the context of other writings in Early Modern English. Should be an essential reference tool not only for Shakespeare editors but for university and school teachers Professor Ernst Honigmann, editor of Arden 3 Othello
