I want to check if what I know is correct or not. We can say "escaped prisoners". In this phrase, "escaped" works as a pre-modifier of "prisoner". But, we cannot use it as a post-modifier like "the police are searching for the prisoners escaped from the jail" In this case, "escaped" is interpreted as a verb so the sentence is considered incorrect. So one should rewrite this like "the police are searching for the prisoners who escaped from the jail."
However,unlike this, it is both correct to say "the retired officer is now working as a farmer", and "the officer retired from the tech-company is now working as a farmer".
So, I think "escaped" and "retired" working as participle-turned adjectives have different traits. The former can be used before a noun but not after, while the latter can be used both before and after a noun.
This is what I thought about it so far. I do now know if am correct about this. Grammar experts out there, please help me!
