There are 2 participles,Present Participle(Perfect Participle Phrases, Perfect Participle,is an error unless Present/past participles were mentioned.), and the Past Participle.
The present participle ends in ---ing, the past participle in --ed in case of regular verbs.
The Adjectival uses of Participles:-
The participles have another function. They are partly verbs,they are also partly adjectives and can function as noun qualifiers.(phrases are included )
Present Participles (used attributively):-
(1)An exciting story
(2)a good-looking man
Present Particip[les (used predicatively):-
(1)The story was exciting
(2)He is very good looking.
(3)The news was disappointing, etc.
Past Participles (used attributively):-
(1)The broken bottle.
(2)a clean-shaven man
Past Participles(used predicatively):-
(1)The bottles were broken
(2)He is clean-shaven.
(3)They are tired workers.
But most participles are not purely adjectival,as eg:-
"Long hair" stood there (watching) councillors at work.
I hope Wong didn't keep you swearing.
"Big Bob" is busy dressing the ceremony.
His objections, if listened to, would wreck c.y.'s gov. plan.
He will be dismissed himself if asked.
