Talk Like Shakespeare

I bet you can’t guess what day today is! Oh fine, I’ll tell you. It’s Talk Like Shakespeare Day!

I’m not the best at accents, dialects, etc. I’ve tried to adopt a Scottish accent and have watched lots of how-to videos but I still can’t get a full sentence out without it sounding somewhat Jamaican. But I think I can master Shakespeare! Although I’m afraid I’ll be like Martha & The Doctor at 0:43 in this video.

I found a helpful article with great tips. It’s more of changing phrases and being a little more elaborate and dramatic with your words. My favorite tip has been changing “damned” to “accursed.” This is going to be so much fun!
