When a verb in the participle form is used as an adjective, it is called a participial adjective. There are 2 forms of participial adjectives:

  1. *-ing *(present participle): cause of the feeling.  E.g. The drink was refreshing.
  2. -ed (past participle): receiver of the feeling. E.g. I feel refreshed.
