The Shaxicon Project

Leave comment
In the summer of 2007, I took on the daunting task of getting my dad's massive Shaxicon database up on the web. The database indexes rare words used by Shakespeare in an effort to understand his thought processes as he wrote the plays that we know and love. The database has been a work in progress for years, and now, at last, it is time to make it available to the public. My part in the project is to build a website which will support both simple searching and more complex statistical analysis of the database.

A lot of Shakespearians would be most interested to see SHAXICON on the web. Are you aware that the link you offer to "" doesn't work, at least not at 17.20 GMT on 10 July 2009?

I second Gabriel's comment: what has become of the SHAXICON project?
