On "strife"

Do a Google News search today for “Shakespeare” and “strife.”  There’s nothing wrong with it. I’m just saying.

Shakespeare, meanwhile, according uses the word “strife” 41 times throughout his oeuvre. The concordance results seem to indicate that the better the play, the fewer times “strife” occurs in it.
