Considering the following phrase --

I gave myself a present for having passed the test.

Ich mir zum bestandenen Examen geschenkt.

Is this analysis of bestandenen OK?

past participle + en (=adjective ending)

This is like Latin, right?

postum christum natum


1 Answer 1


Yes, your analysis of "zum bestandenen Examen" is correct. It's like "post christum natum" in latin.

The sentence is missing a predicate and an object, one way to complete it would be:

Ich habe mir zum bestandenen Examen etwas geschenkt.
