comment “Newly found” vs. “New Found”
@Unreason: Under ‘new-found’, the OED gives only ‘newly or recently found, discovered, or invented’ and ‘designating newly discovered land, islands, etc.’ However, definition 5 for the adverb ‘new’ has ‘with past participles used predicatively, or in a postmodifying non-finite clause, in the sense “anew, again, afresh”'. ‘New found’ in the OP’s example is not used predicatively, yet the sense still seems to be of a RENEWED respect, rather than one that has only recently been given.
