    Hello Csika,

    Your sentence does not sound correct. A sentence cannot be 'processed'. I am not sure in what context you are trying to use this sentence. You can say that 'This sentence is complex' or 'This sentence structure is not simple'.

    Thanks

    Hi Carol,

    In academic/technical language when a sentence is 'processed' means that it is understood. The question, however, whether the two structures mean the same (see my original post) is still not clear.
