    postpositive adjectives

    Is it correct to say the following:
    the performed experiments were inconclusive
    the used methodology----
    the applied medication
    I feel that in each case, the adjective must be postpositive, but I come across the above expressions in scientific articles.

    Re: postpositive adjectives

    All of these phrases are fine.

    Why do you feel they are not?
