Q: What does the word "seem" mean in these lines of Shakespeare?

J. WuIn Shakespeare's Othello 3.1.26, the Clown answers Cassio: She is stirring, sir; if she will stir hither, I shall seem to notify unto her. where the verb "seem" makes me confused.

Q: What does Regan mean by "square of sense" in King Lear?

Would it be appropriate to use for an which centers largely on the use of capitalization? literature.stackexchange.com/questions/2807/…
 
3:07 PM
@bobble seems very appropriate from reading the tag wikis
 
4:04 PM
@Spagirl Congrats on the silver tag badge!
You're only the third person to get one on the whole site, after Gareth and Tsundoku.
I'm a wee bit behind you to hopefully become the fourth soon :-)

@Randal'Thor thank you! I didn’t even know I was close until you mentioned it. I wasn’t aware I answered so many ‘meaningful’ questions.

@bobble I would say no, as it's not a question about orthography. Would we use e.g. for an ID question about a translated work, even if its translation was so memorable as to be the main distinctive feature of the question?

@Randal'Thor I think if the translation style was required for the identification... Maybe?
@Randal'Thor they get expensive fast

@Randal'Thor that’s a very large ‘if’…
 
8:13 PM
At least another 800 rep to make Lit your top site would be nice :-)

@Bookworm This seems to have gone HNQ.
 
@Randal'Thor I was going to write exactly the same thing :-D
