Added by: sirfragalot  
p.33   "The written word in early modern England still carried the bodily force of the spoken word. For us, written words are symbols, arbitrary signs of the things signified. For Shakespeare's contemporaries, I would argue, written words functioned as indices, as signs carrying a bodily, metonymic connection with the things being signified."   Added by: sirfragalot

pp.24-33   Presents evidence that readers in the early modern age (c.1600) would have heard sounds in texts (handwriting, woodcuts and print). Levels and different types of literacy, contemporary witnesses (e.g. Erasmus), didactic books encouraging new writers to pronounce the phonemes as they are written. This is not the case for the modern reader.   Added by: sirfragalot
