I would like to know if saying "my learned things" could be correct or not.

For example :

I want to save my learned things in a file

I searched the exact words "my learned things" in Google, and only got 27 results, so I'm very unsure.

If it is not correct, could you advise me with any other correct form to say "the things I learned".

Thanks you !

    Hmm? What's wrong with "the things I learned"? I'd post that as an answer, but you appear to already know the phrase. In any case, no, "my learned things" definitely sounds unusual.

  • @snailboat In fact, it's for a web domain name, and thingsilearned is already taken (not a surprise though), thats why I'm looking for another way to say "the things I learned". If "my learned things" sounds unusual, I guess it's a bad idea for a web domain name. :/ Thanks anyway Dec 18, 2013 at 11:02

    Alternatives could be whatilearned or whativelearned Dec 18, 2013 at 11:09
  • @StoneyB Sounds good, yes. I was too focused on the "things" word. Thanks you. Dec 18, 2013 at 11:16
  • can someone explain a rule here? i am putting various verbs in this sentence and some are fine and some aren't. e.g. "chosen, preferred, selected" are fine but "learned, gained" are not.

1 Answer 1


Yes, my learned things does sound rather uncommon and unusual. Things that I learnt would be a better replacement.

    In American English, we accept learnt but most of us would say learned instead.

  • yes. I did think so. So in that case, either should be fine. You can also use Things that I learned, learnt would be accurate too...

  • Oh, certainly. I didn't mean to imply that learnt was wrong--I just wanted to add an American perspective.
