Proved in that context appears to be the passive form of a verb

Proven is adjectival

 

Michael Gove is a proven a***

 

now say that you have a list of facts that prove that Gove is a c***. Would you then end with it is proved, or it is proven?

Depends. Gove blah blah blah blah...and so it was proven he was a c***.

It was expected that Gove was a c***, and so it proved.

 

Bit vague here, Surf.

As the past participle of prove, proven is often proscribed, with proved preferred – “have proved” rather than “have proven”. However, today in everyday use they are both used, about equally

Source of quote helps.

 

For all we know it could be Ricardo Vaz Te

If you have a list of "facts" then it is proved.

 

What is proved is that Gove is a proven c***

If we're using it as the participle of 'to prove', then both are possible. Proven is maybe a bit antiquated now.

 

As Ripley says, the adjectival form is proven.

 

Michael Gove would love you.

Right, so lets say you've written a healthy paragraph on why Gove is a massive c***. Nah, let's say you've had a really productive evening and written a whole chapter. You now want to finalise it with a Q.E.D of sorts and can chose to end underline it with either a "It is proved." or a "It is proven". Not as the ending of a sentence (as Earl did earlier) but as a sentence by itself. Which do you choose?

I wouldn't write a sentence like that. It's not a proper sentence, it's a clause.

It might not be a sentence you would write, but it's a proper sentence.

 

It shouldn't surprise you, he's Dutch, the Dutch do Dutch worse than the Belgians.

 

You've been listening to too many Belgians. They speak silly Dutch and silly French so you can't take them seriously. The only things the Belgians do properly is beer, chips and chocolate.

 

Why not just go with Q.E.D?

 

so basically the same but in a language no one speaks and then abbreviated? i liked you more when you digged vacuum cleaners
