How to Play
To clarify: I am not saying that William Shakespeare actually invented each of these words from scratch; rather, the words that this quiz claims were invented by the Bard are simply words which were first publicly published in works by Wiliam Shakespeare. Also, not all words were used in the same sense by Shakespeare as they are today.
