Shakespearean English? We use it daily!

For goodness sake, don't use all this flowery English with me! I am not that good in language.

Do you hear people saying this?
Not many, these days, because, many of the words and phrases that Shakespeare used 400 years ago have come to stay in daily use of English.
The words such as 'rant', 'fashionable' are among many words he coined.
"Haven't you slept one wink during examination time?" Shakespeare did it first.

Here is an article written on the occasion of William Shakespeare's 450th birthday.
Read it. Interesting!
