Apparently, Shakespeare coined ALLof the next phrases. Click on the phrase to see the passage:1

academe accused habit promoting amazement
arouse assassination backing bandit bed room
beached besmirch birthplace blanket bloodstained
barefaced blushing wager bump buzzer
caked cater champion circumstantial cold-blooded
compromise courtship numerous critic dauntless
daybreak deafening discontent dishearten drugged
dwindle epileptic equivocal elbow pleasure
publicity eyeball modern fixture flawed
frugal beneficiant gloomy gossip green-eyed
gust trace hobnob hurried impede
neutral invulnerable jaded label lackluster
laughable lonely decrease baggage lustrous
madcap majestic marketable metamorphize mimic
monumental moonbeam mountaineer negotiate noiseless
obscene obsequiously ode olympian outbreak
panders pedant premeditated puking radiance
rant remorseless savagery scuffle safe
skim milk submerge summit swagger torture
tranquil undress unreal diverse vaulting
nugatory zany gnarled grovel

Fairly outrageous. Nationwide Geographicexplains why so many phrases are attributed to Shakespeare:

Regardless of Shakespeare’s apparently appreciable contributions to the language, Macrone and different teachers are fast to warning that it’s virtually unattainable say with completely certainty when a phrase or phrase was first used—and even whom to credit score for creating it.In Shakespeare’s case, most of the phrases and phrases attributed to him merely debuted of their trendy permutations in his writings and might truly be traced again to older varieties. Different phrases and turns of phrase are certainly “unique,” insomuch as they’re documented within the written document solely way back to Shakespeare.
