Are the following sentences correct, gramatically? If yes, is there any difference in meaning between them?

1. Teacher spoke to the concerned parents

2. Teacher spoke to the parents concerned

  • english -

    Gramatically they are correct, although adding the at the beginning would make them sound better.
    In the first sentence, the teacher spoke to the parents; in the second one the concerns are addressed.

  • english -

    Where you place the adjective "concerned" makes a difference. In sentence #1 it is clear the parents were concerned. In #2 it could be the teacher was concerned. Go with Anonymous' suggestion of beginning #1 with "The" but I would not use sentence #2.
