    judged vs. adjudged

    Hi teachers,

    I would like to ask if there is any difference in meaning or usage between "judged" and "adjudged" in the following sentences:

    Sentence 1:
    His suitability for this job should be adjudged by his previous working experience.
    Sentence 2:
    His suitability for this job should be judged by his previous working experience.

    Thank you.

    Kitty

    Re: judged vs. adjudged

    I think only the second sentence is correct.

    As far as using "adjudge," here's an example: he was adjudged to be unqualified for the job.

    I'm not a teacher.
