Dear Fellow Users, To put an adjective before a noun is usually the most natural way of doing it. Yet, sometimes the meaning can be affected if we move an adjective and put it after a noun... I wanted to ask you about this one:


I'm making a website and I'm not sure how I should label one of the tabs... Does undertaken refer merely to accomplished projects or typical projects that I company usually deals with? 

a) projects undertaken
b) undertaken projects

"Undertaken projects" or "projects undertaken" mean the same. For a tab, my preference would be "Projects Undertaken" to emphasize Project. However, "undertaken" does not mean completed. It just means you started working on them. If you want to indicate what projects are typical of the company, I would say so. "Sample Projects" or "Typical Projects."

Thanks Doctor D.

How about...

a) accomplished projects


b) projects overview
B. is fine. For A, I would say "Completed Projects." (And capitalize initial letters).
why wouldn't you say accomplished projects ?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
"Completed Projects" focuses on the state of the projects being talked about. "Accomplished" focuses more on the person doing the work because that word, "accomplished," is more commonly used to talk about a person.

He is an accomplished musician. (he is talented)

Or the accomplishment is done by a person:

He accomplished much during his life.
