Shakespearean Imagination

Good even and twenty, friends!

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

In last week's post, I mentioned that the United Kingdom is busy celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (60 years on the throne). Watching some of the pageantry of the celebration has inspired me with this week's word:

fashionable: \faSH(ə)nəbəl\ (adj): 1.Characteristic of, influenced by, or representing a current popular trend or style.
2.(of a person) Dressing or behaving according to the current trend.

Synonyms: stylish - smart - modish - modern - elegant - trendy

First seen in Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida (written 1601-1602). The full text of the play may be found here.
