Michael, born and bred in London, is a scientist from Cambridge.
is clear. He was born and I grew up in that city (I do not know the origins of the word
bred, but I trust it to mean
Now, imagine that he was born in one city but grew up in another:
Michael, born in London and bred in Paris, is a scientist from Cambridge.
- Question 1: Is this allowed? May I split up the usually fixed phrase
born and bredlike this?
Since I wasn't sure that this was allowed I tried working with an alternative to
bred. Such alternative would be
grow up in its past tense. Some suggestions would be:
Michael, born in London and grew up in Paris, is a scientist from Cambridge.
Michael, born in London and grown up in Paris, is a scientist from Cambridge.
But I am in doubt here. This does not seem correct by far.
- Question 2: Are any of these versions with
grown upcorrect, or would something else fit?
How would the perfect sentence be?
