    past participles are adjective too?

    Hello dear friends

    I think that "broken" is the adjective form of the verb "brake".Am I right?

    like in the example:broken leg

    But I'm not sure if the past participles of verbs are their adjective forms

    ex:defeated,beated,broken,amputated head,known city...

    are those all the adjective forms of their verbs

    thanks for your responses

    Your thanks are appreciated, egerol, but I would encourage you to write in standard English in the forum as an example to other students.
