Abstract

'SUFFRAGE' AND 'PRECEDENT', 'MERCY' AND 'GRACE' by DAVID DAUBE (Berkeley) To Charles Kingsley and Margaret Barrett, in gratitude I. Mod legalese in Shakespeare 1. - A cute little piece in the Chronicle by W. Safire on the latest trendy expres- sionsl includes 'basically' as a replacement of `I mean, uh' or 'actually', and 'to track a development' instead of `to monitor' which, in turn, long ago superseded 'to follow', Such fads are always significant. 'Basically' reflects the thirs- for the handful of down-to-earth essentials. 'To monitor' evoked the radio-engineer's etBcient reading of signals. Its successor 'to track' is not, as an Oxonian might like to think, a harking back to safari and hunt, but space age lingo. No doubt the testtube baby just born will inspire a few chic neologisms. 2. - In my lectures, occasionally I throw in such a phrase. 'Don't trivialize me'. I have long ceased being ashamed of keeping my class awake by any device that does it no harm, and I am fortified by a discovery I made many years since in Shakespeare - my favourite reading next to the Bible: he was very quick in picking up and putting to use new
