Business English Lesson, Advanced Level

ESL/EFL Test #235 "Electronic Commerce (1)", answer 1

This paper by Derek Miers received critical acclaim when it was published in 1996, and the issues highlighted are just as relevant today.

Correct answer: (a) acclaim
_________________________

Can you help me? I thought there's something wrong with sentence: the issues highlighted are just as relevant today. Right sentence: the highlighted issues are just as relevant today. Because "highlighted" is an adjective, it should stand before noon (issue).

There is nothing wrong with the sentence.
Think of it like this:
'The issues (that are) highlighted are just as relevant today.
(The 'that are' is omitted and assumed).

oh, thanks for your help very quickly. It's very helpful to me. But if I write: the highlighted issues are just as relevant today. Its also right?

I agree with Mister Micawber:" Yes. It is the author's choice here."

But we have to learn collocations, and I see the next collocations:
-international acclaim
-popular acclaim
-critical acclaim

acclaim: (n) (U)= praise or approval for sb/sth, especially an artistic achievement.

collocation with critical:
-critical report
-critical comment
-critical acclaim
