- simple past tense and past participle of apprehend
apprehended (comparative more apprehended, superlative most apprehended)
- (obsolete) Having come to accept an understanding of something.
As an adjective, "apprehended" is only used derived from the meaning (To take hold of with the understanding, that is, to conceive in the mind; to become cognizant of; to understand; to recognize; to consider). As a past participle, however, it is often used attributively in a way that looks like an adjective: The apprehended criminals were brought to the jail.
