Taking inspiration from the recent trends in research, this special issue charts innovative research questions, perspectives and tools that are being employed to investigate Shakespearean language across the wide range of his works − tragedies, comedies, and sonnets − and, in doing so, it offers a prismatic picture of the Bard’s wit. More specifically, the collection of articles probes into the advantages and strengths of adopting a linguistic approach to revisit Shakespeare’s creativity and sets new avenues for future research, by capturing a rich diversity of perspectives and variously combining current developments in both linguistic theories and research methodologies: from speech act theory to historical pragmatics, from construction grammar to cognitive linguistics and cognitive poetics, from translation studies to corpus stylistics, corpus-assisted research and computational analysis.
