“I would drown myself for the love of a guinea hen.” – Othello

There’s your regular dictionary, your urban dictionary, even something called Your Dictionary.  Today I introduce ShakeDic – Shakespeare’s Dictionary.  In my current reading of Othello I’m coming across a number of words I am not only unfamiliar with, but I find hilarious/interesting once I figure out what Shakespeare meant by them.  I’ll post more examples over the coming months, but here’s the first:  guinea hen – slang term for a prostitute

Use in a sentence:  Honey, you haven’t seen any guinea hens lately, have you?
