I recently came across the following sentence:
Gehörtes oder Gelesenes kann man mit der direkten oder der indirekten Rede wiedergeben.
The words Gehörtes and Gelesenes were new to me and after further searchs on Linguee.com it seems that there is a set of similar words including Gesehenes, Gesprochenes, Erlebtes, Gelesenes (potentially more) with the following characteristics:
- Take the role of a noun in a sentence
- Have the sense of “what is seen, heard, read etc”
- Formed with the past participle of a verb + “es”
- Do not have the definitive article and do not decline
Do I have this correct?
Also, the form and usage seems quite productive and I would like to know what set of verbs can be included.
