Verb + adjective?[change]

At Wiktionary:Simple talk#Regulated, a question was raised:

  • By the way, regulated is a verb, not an adjective. Yes, it's used as a modifier, but that doesn't make it an adjective.--Brett (talk) 21:26, 1 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The dictionaries I checked agree with Brett; but the definitions I found were not written in a way which includes phrases like "regulated trade" or "unregulated trade." The examples of the word in specific sentences make me believe it is a verb and an adjective as well.

FYI: This version of the standard Wiktionary consider "unregulated" as an adjective.

I don't know how to handle this? --Tenmei (talk) 00:29, 2 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
