See my comment on author David Ives' All In the Timing: Fourteen Plays:

This book came up in conversation, totally independently from my reading of Word Freak, from a discussion on ambiguity in language (and there from a discussion of the illustrated Strunk & White) which let to "Hamlet... in love... with the old man's daughter... the old man... thinks" in "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead", which led to David Ives' "The Universal Language" and to the language in "Dogg's Hamlet" (in this collection).

So I feel that I have to at least read "Dogg's Hamlet" from this book, if not the whole book.
