I want to know the difference between word drunk and drunken.
I looked up the dictionary and found that two words have same meaning, someone drinks alcohol too much.
About drunk, it could be interpreted as two meanings, one is meaning of past participle form of verb drink and the other is meaning of adjective (also someone drinks alcohol too much).
Here, I am curious about usage of two adjectives drunk and drunken.
My teacher said
"He was drunken" is ungrammatical, whereas "a drunken driver" and "He was drunk" are grammatical.
I'm really curious that why he was drunken is not accepted but he was drunk is okay.
