Мой комментарий к записи «Обогащение английского» от terrasancta

Всё не так однозначно. Есть серьёзные доводы, оспаривающие цифру 1700.

Strictly speaking, it is not possible to determine whether Shakespeare invented the words that had not been recorded before they appeared in his works. It is possible that at least some of these words circulated in spoken language before Shakespeare picked them up.
