    I was astonished to know the so called Mod words like LOL and OMG owe their origin to the Bard of Avon. I was equally astonished to know that the word 'Assassination' was used first by this inimitable writer of all time.
    Very thought provoking article. I owe my gratitude to you.

    Its my pleasure sir!!! :) I too was really astonished to see these words first used by Shakespeare! Most of these words are totally synonymous with the young crowds of today. Just goes on to show that classic literature never goes out of fashion!

    Very informative link. I was unaware with the fact that all these words which we use in our day to day lives, were gifted to us by Sir William Shakespeare.

    Thanks for the informative post. However I'm not really surprised like some friends for the simple reason that I have very little knowledge of literary English.

    That's your humility Gulshan Saheb. A humble man will never boast of his knowledge be it English literature or any other literature.

    Sir William Shakespeare invented thousands and thousands of words and expanded English language. His contribution will always be remembered.
