He looks around the desolated street.
In this sentence, If I'm not wrong, 'desolated' is an adjective, right? Or is it a verb? In the dictionary 'desolate' is defined as an adjective. "Desolated" is defined as the past tense of "desolate".
- Only verb can be in past tense or even adjective can be in past tense?
- In the above sentence "desolated" is a verb or an adjective? My guess is it's an adjective here.
- Is "desolated" a past participle of the verb "desolate"?
- Is the above sentence wrong and should I have written the above as below?
He looks around the desolate street.
Mostly I'm sure my first sentence is correct, but I'm little confused.
