I was thinking that the word switched could be used as a noun and maybe an adjective too but I might just be making grammar mistakes. Switched in the dictionary only shows up as being a verb!
Here are the examples and comparison sentences I was using: The shirts are brightly colored. The shirts are wool. The shirts are switched. (This sentence might be incorrect but it is the kind of sentence which I would use off the top of my head in everyday conversation. Switched seems like it's being used as a noun to me.) The switched shirts are both wool. (Here is how I think that switched could be used as an adjective.)
Please let me know your thoughts on this and correct me if I errored in any way! I am trying to better understand my own language in order to better study another.
