At Corinth and Athens, however, two of the best-known potters’ quarters were situated on the cities’outskirts, and potters and makers of terra-cotta figurines were also established well within the city of Athens itself.
In the above sentence, I think that "situated" can be a verb or an adjective. How can I know whether it is a verb or an adjective in this kind of sentence?
Which part of sentence that the "well" modify, "establish" or "within"?
Thanks for help!
Why it isn't a passive voice?
Is there any way to know it is an adjective not verb in passive voice?
You have asked an excellent question.
If you will go to the search box and type in "adjective or passive," you will find many helpful threads that address
P.S. I googled a bit, and I discovered that many reputable on-line dictionaries classify "situated" as an adjective.
Thank you, TheParser
Yes, there are a lot of useful thread about it.
After searching the web, I see that there are many verbs can be used as adjectives or passive voice and in many cases, a dual interpretation is possible.
