    Default tagged and labled

    She was tagged being the worst in the class.

    She was labled being the worst in the class.

    Are tagged and labled in the same meaning in the above sentences?

    Thank you.

    Hi 5jj,

    Thank you for your kind reply.

    AreDo tagged and labelled in have the same meaning in the above sentences?

    Can I know why I cannot use my way to write the above sentence? When I answer to my own question. The answer should read as :

    Tagged and labelled are in the same meaning in the above sentences which I find it's grammatical.

    Can you correct me, please.

    Thank you.

    Maybe he can, but I have no idea what you mean; are there some quotation marks missing? Besides. 'in the same meaning' is wrong here.

    Hi b,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Oh, I know I should have written the sentence as:

    Do tagged and labelled mean the same in the above sentences?

    Am I right this time?

    Thank you.
