Hi,

Consider these two sentences:

  1. It all depends on how much we know about the studied phenomenon.
  2. It all depends on how much we know about the phenomenon studied.

I see both these structures used in academic writing, the latter slightly more often. Is any of them better?

Thanks,
nyggus

Re: the studied aspect / the aspect studied

I also prefer the second.

nyggus, you have been a member long enough to know that if it hadn't been correct teechar would have said so.

I have changed your thread title to match your question.
