From time to time you probably think about certain structures and pattern. Now, a person can well-behaved (especially children :-)). It all makes sense, doesn’t it? But why is this adjective made up of a past participle and not of a gerund? I mean, to behave is something you do rather than you are. So why don’t we use “well-behaving” instead?
Most certainly a moot question but we could have as well a discussion about it, couldn’t we?[YSaerTTEW443543]
