Considering Hamlet, the data in Table 9 clearly exhibits that the words hear and heaven are more often used in association with the concept of vengeance than any other words, although the words ambitious, bounds, break, death, father, hell, murther, murthered, proud, sanctuarize
, wits, work and writ also distinguish among other collocations of vengeance linking this concept to specific characteristic features and context.
Claudius eggs Laertes on: "what would you undertake/ To show yourself your father's son in deed/ More than in words?" And Laertes answers: "To cut his throat i' the church." Claudius seconds him: "No place indeed should murder sanctuarize
;/ Revenge should have no bounds." (4.7.123-127)
