From the article:

Quote
By throwing odd words into seemingly normal sentences, Shakespeare surprises the brain and catches it off guard in a manner that produces a sudden burst of activity - a sense of drama created out of the simplest of things.

Ah. That's how he did it.

I wonder if the same effect is created
by watching the plays, as opposed to reading?
I suppose so.
