    Diagramming Shakespeare 12

    "Brevity is the soul of wit". Hamlet

    That quote comes to mind when I think that the fewer understood words it takes to flesh out the syntax of an elliptical sentence (Like "Will you, nill you, I will marry you") the better.

    The quote also shows that deep thought does not require complex syntax.
