William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday: 50 everyday phrases that came from the Bard – News – Books – The Independent

Title_page_William_Shakespeare's_First_Folio_1623TechCommGeekMom reader Clare Smith from Hampshire, UK was kind enough to bring this article to my attention, asking if Americans use these turns of phrase as often as many Brits do. The answer is, absolutely! Americans use many of these phrases ourselves! Naturally, Americans do read their Shakespeare and we still stand to learn a bit from our British cousins when it comes to language.

Thanks Clare for the recommendation! Happy 450th Birthday to William Shakespeare!
