    a tale of trust betrayed

    Is there a difference between:
    1-It is a tale of trust betrayed.
    and:
    2-It is a tale of betrayed trust.

    Does "1" mean
    "It is a tale of trust being betrayed."
    while "2" means
    "It is a tale of trust that has been betrayed."

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: a tale of trust betrayed

    No. They both mean "It is a tale of trust that has been betrayed."
