vermoeid

Listed as a verb, but translated as "tired", which would be an adjective. What is it? Mutante 10:24, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't knwo Dutch, and maybe, as you suggest, this is wrong, but some languages have verbs for what are adjectives in English.—msh210 16:22, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
This is probably a "participle". It doesn't have the characteristic ending of the verb lemma form (infinitive) for Dutch, but looks like an adjective or participle ending. I don't have access to my Dutch dictionaries at the moment, so I can't say whether the is a participial verb form or simply an adjective. --EncycloPetey 17:55, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
It’s from the verb vermoeien. It’s a past participle, but it could also be called an adjective. —Stephen 06:16, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Ok,changed infl template to infl|nl|participle to reflect the changed heading and created Category:Dutch participles. Mutante 16:01, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
