Charles Bishop was a professor of Greek at West Virginia University and built his life's work on the study of -teos adjectives in Greek syntax. Such adjectives are rich with meaning, formed from verbs and given imperative and passive force in a way dissimilar to their cognate formations in other ancient Indo-European languages. In Sophocles, whose drama hinges on the meanings and shades of meanings in words, the precise nature of this formation is very important to understanding the dramatic dynamics of his work. Students of Greek tragedy and linguists with an interest in drama will both find this an interesting piece and a fruitful example of multidisciplinary work between Classics and Linguistics.
