Jodie you know this?

The English language owes a great debt to Shakespeare. He invented over 1700 of our common words by changing nouns into verbs, changing verbs into adjectives, connecting words never before used together, adding prefixes and suffixes, and devising words wholly new!

I am just going to mention a few

accommodation
aerial
amazement
apostrophe
assassination
auspicious
baseless
bloody
bump
castigate
changeful
clangor
control (noun)
countless
courtship
critic
critical
dexterously
dishearten
dislocate
dwindle
eventful


Hope you like it!

I Imagine Oscar Wilde to have had a languorous manner

Ok- how about this Spittalfields- a place in London but sounds great!

Languorous - another nice word!

Madrugada - according to my understanding stands for that time between night and day when everything is still and calm- think of that point about dawn when the day is full of potential but has yet to fully open up into the activity of morning. Beautiful!

Sorry Ferney- it is spelt Madrugada. But I prefer my spelling!
