Daily Lesson 3

Use "not" to indicate negatives instead of "don't".  Often used in a
double negative sense.  (Note:  Confuse this not with "naught", which
means "nothing.")
     "I like him not!"
     "She is not uncomely."
     "I know not this matter of which you speak."

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
Prithee - "I entreat you"; "please"
     "Prithee, my lord, wouldst direct me to the privy?"
