  • The verb "made" in your examples is in the passive voice. (plural) "Oranges are grown in California", and (Past Passive) "Napoleon was defeated in the battle of Waterloo" – Mari-Lou A Nov 28 '17 at 8:05
  • Thanks, Yes i noticed that. Just got confused about 'made' after reading "they have filled the bag with coins" and "the bag is full of coins" in 1st filled is verb and in 2nd full is adjective. – TheRising Nov 28 '17 at 8:26

made is the past and past participle of make.

made is an adjective usually used in combining form, e.g., handmade, tailor-made

As @Davo points out, it's also used as an adjective in "a made man."

See made Oxford Dictionaries; also look in the same source for the definition of make, which has many meanings and uses.

  • Okay so i looked up for both made and make in that dictionary and it seems as stated by "Mari-Lou A" that in my sentences it was "verb". "Made" is used as adjective in combination like handmade. Thanks! – TheRising Nov 28 '17 at 10:31
