    Thanks - this is really helpful Anyone who is interested in neologisms rather than Shakespeare himself might also want to have a quick look at http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2004/12/27/words-to-the-wise/?_r=0 and http://www.breakingnewsenglish.com/1211/121115-vocabulary.html which also has some plunderable resources and ideas.
