Adjective is associated with -ed or with -ing #1 (permalink) Sat Apr 11, 2009 21:38 pm   Adjective is associated with -ed or with -ing
 

hi,
I don't know when the adjective is associated with ed or with ing

ex.: the dog's habit of barking was extremely (annoying or annoyed)
the man was (startling or startled) by the noise in the bushes
the woman was (embarrasing or embarrased) by the behaviour of her child
which one in each is right?
as I know the adjective be with ed if follow the object and be with ing if follow the subject
right?

thanks
