Apparently, I am a tad Elizabethan

Your English is 86 percent Shakespearean.

Is this the Bard I see before me?


Above you see the verdict. I pulled a random couple of paragraphs from my current work in progress, “Rule Number One,” not, you might think. a work of much literary merit, and plunked the passage into this nifty little analyzer from the Oxford Dictionary. And . . . huh. Apparently I owe much of my language to the Bard of Avon, even when I am not trying for the highbrow.  I suspect if I plunked in some other bits, the percentage might be higher and other bits might be lower. This was just one random spot.

Wanna try for yourself? Oh, come on. You know you do.

How Shakespearean Are You Anyway?
