A Complete Pronunciation Dictionary for the Plays of William Shakespeare
Louis is co-author with Shane Ann Younts of “All the Words on Stage, A Complete Pronunciation Dictionary for the Plays of William Shakespeare”. This invaluable tool has been crafted into an audio app, Audio Shakespeare Pronunciation App, that makes hearing the pronunciations all the easier and practical.
Shakespeare has always been a challenge for actors, students, and theater artists. Louis and Shane Ann hope that this work will contribute to the growing interest in and increasing emphasis on the complexities of Shakespeare’s language, especially his verse, and above all, on the articulation of these texts as works that can be performed.
“Anyone who has dedicated numerous rehearsal hours to explore and prepare for a production of Shakespeare will be delighted that this useful tool, painstakingly put together by Louis Scheeder and Shane Ann Younts, is available. Their comprehensive pronunciation dictionary blends thorough academic expertise with the practicalities of helping actors navigate the splendidly perilous ocean of Shakespeare’s language so that the actors can satisfy Hamlet’s request to speak their speeches ‘trippingly on the tongue’.”
