The complexity if Shakespeare's language has been an object of study for many scholars over the centuries, and is currently witnessing increased engagement fromlinguists with different scientific persuasions, who integrate knowledge and new research methods, and open up novel specialized subfields in Shakespearean linguistics. Taking inspiration from the recent trends in reserach, this special issue charts innovative research questions, perspectives and tools that are being empoyed to investigate Shakespeare's language across a wide range of his works - tragedies, comedies and sonnets. In doing so, it offers a prismatic picture of the Bard's wit. More specificaly, the collection of articles probes into teh advantages and strengths of adopting a linguistic approach to revisit Shakespeare's creativity and sets new avenues for future research, by capturing a righ diversity of perspectives and variously combining current developments in both linguistic theories and research methodologies: fromspeech act theory and cognitive poetics, fromtranslation studies to corpus linguistics, corpus-assisted research and computational analysis.
