:rofl:Oooh. Given how much I hate Jane Austen that's tempting...
My only complaint is that you didn't make it perfectly clear that Mr. Darcy is socially superior to poor Lizzy.
As for MacBeth - that WAS in Scottish dialect. Lowlanders speak in a very similar manner to the English you know. It's only in films that they change. We just do that to fool foreign types
"Properly" = As outrageously stereotypical as possible. An Ingmar Bergman drama with properly Swedish dialogue would involve everyone sounding like the Swedish Chef, which, all things considered, would be an astonishing improvement on the original.
