I was wondering what he would make of text. And how his works would read if written in text.

HAMLET Act 3 Scene 1: "2 B or Nt 2 b tht is the question".

As You Like It: Act 4 Scene 1: "Cn 1 desire 2 mch of a gd fing?"

I'm not very good at text speak, someone who knows this dialect would be better at writing it.

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

Yes, I know that. But, it's text speak....and in text speak...everything is abbreviated.

Scene 2. Lawn before the Duke.
Enter Celia and Rosalind

Rosalind.

"Well, I wil 4get the condition of my est, to rejoice in yaws"

Is that better C.J.?

You are quite right C.J. Mea Culpa. I will pay your fines and write a letter to the Magistrate stating you were nothing to do with this fiasco. I shall point the finger of blame at someone who has a dubious past.....SKOOB.

I think Ellie went to make a cuppa.

Hello Rad,

Are you suggesting our Ellie uses "Erbal tea mon" I know she can get a bit wild at times, I think its the brown bread, or coffee, tried to tell her, would she listen?
