Patterns: Past Participle + Noun
In my understanding
Past Participle + noun means the action applied to the noun as follows:
murdereda little girl = The little girl was
murderedby him. The
murdered girlis being investigated by polices.
copiedmy file without my permission = My file was
copied(by him) without my permission. The
copied fileis very confidential.
copied file refer to the original file? Or does it refer to the copy of the original file?
Based on my understanding above, the
copied file should refer to the original one. But it is not the case when I read the following quote
Subversion does not create an entire new file version in the repository with its copy. Instead, the old and new versions are linked together internally and the history is preserved for both. The
copied versionstake up only a little extra room in the repository because Subversion saves only the differences from the original versions.
copied version represents the copy of the original one.
