Words, Word, Words

"Seems, madam! Nay, it is; I know not 'seems'.
'Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,
Nor customary suits of solemn black,
Nor windy suspiration of forced breath...
That can denote me truly;."
- Hamlet, I.ii.79

deep sighing, intense breathing

all entries for "Words, Words, Words" taking from Shakespeare's Words: A Glossary and Language Companion by David and Ben Crystal, Penguin Books, 2002
