    Damaging would be modifying something causing the damage (ex.-The damaging storm swept across the entire county.).

    Damaged would be modifying something that was damaged (ex.-There will be a sale of damaged products on Saturday.).

    thank you. but is there any general rule for use of such "multiple" adjactives or it is case by case?

    Generally, it is case by case depending on what you want the meaning of the words to be. Words that modify (adjectives and adverbs) can be extremely confusing sometimes. Keep working with them!

    Melg, Hello . What do you mean by 'multiple' adjectives? Could you give us an example?

    Thanks agl01.

    Casiopea: I mean in some cases you may have several adjactives from a single verb. For example for the verb damage there exists two adjactives: damaging and damaged. So in such cases when you have different forms of adjactives is there any general rule ?

    agl01's post #2 sounds right.

    Spelling note, adjective.
