'I passed the exam.' The exam = 'The passed exam.'
'I named the boy.' The boy = 'The named boy.'
'I called the girl.' The girl = 'The called girl.'
What = 'The boy named John.'?
What = 'The girl called Sarah.'?
Is 'named' and 'called' past participles as adjectives? Are they relative clauses with ellipsis of 'who is'? Or is it something else?
This has bugged me for weeks now. Please help.
For a bonus, what = 'A streetcar named desire."?
