Because of Shakespeare, we can be “traditional”.

In addition to writing “38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems,” Shakespeare also created a whole lot of words. I’ll leave it up to you if you’d rather peruse an incredibly extensive, alphabetized list of (most) of these words or read an over-the-top, mildly offensive, list of 10 of his words and phrases.

If you’re around New York City this summer, you can hear several of these words (and many more that weren’t coined by Shakespeare) in the Public Theater’s famous Shakespeare in the Park, which starts tonight and continues through August 1.

June 9’s daily design idea is sometimes creating a new word can help you best communicate your idea. And who knows? Maybe one day it could become a “household word.”
