Shakespearean Imagination

Well met, friends!

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

As this week marks the baby shower for dear friends who are awaiting the arrival of a much-anticipated first child, I thought it only apropos that the word for today be:

blanket : blan•ket /ˈblaNGkit/ (noun) (adjective) (verb) :



noun
- A large piece of woolen or similar material used as a bed covering or other covering for warmth

adjective
- Covering all cases or instances; total and inclusive

verb
- Cover completely with a thick layer of something



Synonyms as a noun: rug - cover - wrap - coverlet

Synonyms as an adjective: general - common - broad - universal - overall

Synonyms as a verb: cover



First seen in Shakespeare's King Lear (written 1605 - 1606). The full text of the play may be found here. Interestingly, Shakespeare uses it as both a verb and a noun in the course of the play.
