Dear Sirs,

What is the name of the verbs in the group of "interest, surprise, confuse, absorb, amaze, amuse, annoy, astonish, bore, charm, etc." which can form to be an adjective and a participle by adding -ed and -ing. I could not find it in your web site (Glossary).

Best regards,
Piak

I don't know of any special term, because the present and past participles of most verbs can be used as adjectives. ;-)
