Asked in Academic Writing, William Shakespeare
What language did shakespeare use?
Shakespeare wrote all his plays and poetry in Modern English, the same language as we use today. The reason it sometimes sounds strange (apart from the fact that it is poetry which always sounds strange) is that it is an earlier form of Modern English called Early Modern English. There are very few differences between Early Modern English and any other dialect of English--some differences in the meanings of words primarily.

Asked in William Shakespeare
Shakespeare was the first to use blank verse?
No; while Shakespeare wrote many of his plays in the form of blank verse, using unrhymed iambic pentameter, he was not the first to use this form. The first appearance of blank verse appeared in Henry Howard's Æneid, and Christopher Marlowe was the one who brought rise to the blank verse in Elizabethan English literature.
Do Australians use English or American English?
They use Australian English, which is derived from the British (U.K.) form of the written language, with its spelling and pronunciation. Answer Given that the British form of English covers a plethora of regional accents and dialects, it's worth noting that the Australian accent is largely, but not exclusively, derived from the English of London, and from Hibernian (Irish) English, as groups from these areas formed a large proportion of the early settlers and especially, convicts.
Asked in Name Origins, Spanish to English
What form of ser comes after a name?
Usually, a name is a singular third party, but sometimes they are plural third parties. Of course, English is not a "perfect" frame of reference for Spanish, but in English you could say "Emily is" or you could say "Michael, Steve, and Susie are". If you are inclined to use "is" in English, use "es" in Spanish, but if you are inclined to use "are" in English, use "son" in Spanish.

Asked in William Shakespeare
Who influenced shakespeares plays and poetry?
Shakespeare's poetry was influenced by the poets of his day. The sonnet form, which he primarily used, was a conventional form for love-poetry. His plays were also influenced by his contemporaries. From Thomas Kyd, he learned that revenge plays could be hugely successful. Marlowe, following the lead given by Norton and Sackville, had popularized the use of blank verse in plays.
