Word Discovery

This is just a small post about a discovery I made while doing my homework. I am studying Shakespeare’s plays this semester, and am currently on Henry IV, Part 1. Whilst reading, I came upon a scene in which several characters put on masks. However, instead of saying mask, they say “vizard.” I’ve seen this word before, and in the context of masks. However, when I had seen it before, most people were arguing that the word was simply made up or a misspelling. It’s not! It’s a word that was used in Elizabethan times. The Bleach fandom just got way cooler to me.
