Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. Here's a wonderful quotation that I think is oftentimes wrong:

"O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love
And I'll no longer be a Capulet."

I always see it "wherefore," when I believe it should be "whyfore." In other words, Juliet is really asking "why" does he have to be Romeo and a Montague, not "where" is he because I think he's right there! Anyway, I love this play and Shakespeare's language.
