I am an EFL learner from Thailand. I have some questions about passive voice and adjective as I need your help on.
I am looking for adjectives in literature (as I need to conduct a small research on adjectives in literary works). But I am so confused between passive voice and adjective.
The given sentence is
'the city is burned' (someone burns the city)
I think it is a passive voice. but when I compare with
'I am interested' (something interests me.)
their structure, to me, look the same.
My question are: Do you consider the 'burned' in the first example an adjective? and How can we differentiate between passive voice structure and adjective?
Thank you in advance,
