Shakespearean Imagination

Good day to you, friends!

It's Wednesday, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

I mentioned in my last post that I was off to the airport - a much-needed vacation in honour of my anniversary! So, as a nod to my dear spouse, today's word is:

courtship: court·ship : \ˈkôrtˌSHip\ (n): (1.) A period during which a couple develop a romantic relationship, esp. with a view to marriage. (2.) Behavior designed to persuade someone to marry one.

Synonyms: suit - courting - court - wooing - addresses

First seen in Shakespeare's Love's Labours Lost (written 1594-1595). The full text of the play may be found here.
