Shakespearean Imagination

Welcome, neighbours!
It's time for another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

It's the Fourth of July, the 'birthday' for the US of A, so in honour of America, I give you today's word:

birthplace : birth·place /ˈbərTHˌplās/ (n):

1.The place where a person was born.
2.The place where something started or originated.

Synonyms: place of birth - home

First seen in Shakespeare's Coriolanus (written 1607-1608). The full text of the play may be found here.

EDIT: Apparently, I had connection problems yesterday, and this hung up as a draft and did not actually post. GRRR!
