Shakespeare’s Lost Sonnets: A Restoration of the Runes
by Roy Neil Graves, Professor of English
The University of Tennessee at Martin

Index to Subtextual Terms in the 1609 Quarto Letterstrings
Foreign Terms and Neologisms (Coinages): A-Z


The numbers in the entries below refer to the Runes, not the visible Sonnets.
Numbers indicate rune numbers and line numbers. For example, 38.11 means that the indexed term occurs in Rune 38, line 11
.
An X refers to the lefthand acrostic codeline;
thus, e.g., 38X means that the indexed term occurs in the emphatic acrostic of Rune 38
.

     Note: Some coined forms, especially oddly inflected terms and combination forms using English elements, are also indexed in the alphabetical sequence of English terms, A-Z above. The list here, at best, is representative and makes no effort to be fully inclusive. It does, I believe, show how Will’s game incorporates polyglot elements to broaden the challenge to reader/players seeking to uncover wit in the Q lines.
     
See the introduction to the subtextual vocabulary for further discussion.
