Rather naïve, failing even to mention the possibilities of counterpoint
(“To bé / or nót / to bé, / thát is / the quéstion,” or the well known
differences in syllabification between Shakespeare’s time and ours
(“banishèd”, “musiciàn”), not to mention the occasional changes in words
(“Mílan”, “revénue”).
