Words, words, words...

As thou likely knowst, Will hath been progenitour to many words and phrases ye moderns use to this day. In As You Like It, Jaques first uses the word "puking":

"They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms."
