Sweet lord, if your lordship were at leisure I should impart a thing to you from his majesty.

It’s remarkable how affected this speech is without actually having any vocabulary or intelligence. The most rarified word is “impart” but what he’s imparting is “a thing.” I mean..there are a million words for message (OK, maybe not a MILLION!) but this guy can only come up with “thing”.

Also his repletion of “lord” in the first bit is pretty sycophantic. Which is definitely a word that Osric wouldn’t know.

Here in 2018, Osric’s speech really reminds me of someone whose face and voice and words are never out of the public eye.
